Cougar Club Honoree November 28, 2009
We are pleased to recognize the generosity and leadership of Mick Shannon as our Honored Club Member for the BYU v. Utah game.
Mick is a Legacy Member of the Cougar Club who has served as a volunteer leader both on the Cougar Club Board of Directors and with the leadership of our Salt Lake Chapter.
Along with personally financial sponsorship for Cougar Club activities, Mick has also used his influence to bless BYU fans worldwide. For example, it was Mick who put together a fireside featuring Dale Murphy, Danny Ainge, and Steve Young that was videotaped and distributed to youth groups and others throughout the LDS Church. This year it was Mick who single-handedly made it possible for Ty Detmer to speak at the Salt Lake Chapter’s Big Blue Bash.
When asked, Mick said his favorite BYU sports moment was the 1980 Miracle Bowl, and this was no surprise. Mick Shannon likes miracles. He likes watching them and he enjoys making them happen.
In 1982 along with Marie Osmond and few others, Mick co-founded the Children’s Miracle Network, which has become one of the world’s leading children’s charities—raising funds for medical care, research, and education that saves or improves the lives of 17 million children annually. To date the Children’s Miracle Network has raised more than $3.4 Billion.
Thank you Mick, for all you have done for the Cougars and for so many others.
