The American Lung Association will host its 18th annual Critics’ Choice Dinner Friday night, Oct. 27, at Cliffbreakers. This year’s featured speaker is Vince Papale.

Papale is the subject of the hit Disney movie Invincible, starring Mark Wahlberg. The movie tells Papale’s story about how he was able to make it from a bartender to a walk-on member and eventually captain of his beloved Philadelphia Eagles.

Papale will be at the dinner to tell his story, take questions, sign autographs and pose for photos with fans. Tickets for the event are still available. Cost is $75 per person. To reserve a seat or for more information, call the Lung Association at 962-6412.
