Wheels Up Founder Kenny Dichter kicks off Super Bowl hospitality with the Denver Broncos’ quarterback Russell Wilson and new head coach Sean Payton.
For Wheels Up members, the Super Bowl means big celebrity-filled parties and its traditional Rao’s pop-up restaurant.
This year it also offered the much-anticipated meeting of future Hall of Fame quarterback Russell Wilson with his new head coach, another future Hall of Famer, Sean Payton.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Wilson and Payton’s first meeting since the hiring occurred during a dinner in Scottsdale hosted by Wheels Up Chairman and CEO Kenny Dichter.
Dichter and Wilson have been long linked for their philanthropic endeavors.
The pair came together to launch Meals Up, supporting Feeding America, at the outset of the Covid pandemic.
Since its start, Meals Up has inspired the donation of nearly 90 million meals for neighbors in need.
As a result, Feeding America has also become one of the annual charities we support alongside Homes For Our Troops with donations as a thank you to subscribers of Private Jet Card Comparisons who complete our subscriber surveys.
The group at Rao’s was joined by Wilson’s wife, the award-winning singer and actress Ciara, and Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana.
