“As National Life continues to grow, and in recognition of doing good since 1848, I am thrilled to align our brand with the Dallas Stars,” Assadi said.

“The Stars is a national hockey program dedicated to uplifting children and improving communities through sport.

Our common interests will be a good partnership in our mutual effort to give back to our communities.”
