Talk of the TownIt’s a rare thing to see Dallas-Fort Worth’s award-winning play-by-play sports announcers Eric Nadel, Chuck Cooperstein, Brad Sham, and Dave Strader in the same room, at the same time.

On Thursday, July 13, that rarity will become reality as Nadel (Texas Rangers), Cooperstein (Dallas Mavericks), Sham (Dallas Cowboys) and Strader (Dallas Stars) come together for an interactive roundtable discussion, moderated by Fox Sports Southwest anchor John Rhadigan.

The roundtable is part of the third annual Talk of the Town, which will take place at Trinity Groves, 3015 Gulden Lane in Dallas. The event, which will benefit the sportscasters’ favorite children’s charities, will run from 7-10 p.m. or, as the organizers note, “until they’re talked out.” Also included will be a VIP reception, sit-down dinner, and silent auction with memorabilia. Proceeds will benefit Rays of Light, Dallas Stars Foundation, Focus on Teens, Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, and New Friends New Life.

“Just getting two of these great announcers together for any special function is so challenging because of their diverse schedules,” Rhadigan said. “Having four in one room, willing to talk and answer questions, is truly a one-time opportunity not to be missed for anyone who is a Dallas sports fan.”

Single tickets are $500. Funds raised will be evenly divided among the five charities and all donations are tax-deductible. For more information about Talk of the Town, visit thetalkofthetown.org, or call 214-706-9535.
