Join Nebraska Children for a celebration of the heroes working to create positive change for kids in our state. The luncheon will feature Keynote Speaker Leigh Anne Tuohy, inspiration behind Sandra Bullock’s Oscar-winning performance in The Blind Side, who will speak about valuing the people who slip through the cracks of the society. She'll also discuss her experience adopting a homeless teenager, Michael Oher, who is now an NFL pro. 

The recipient of this year's Grace Abbott Award will be Gary Stangler, Executive Director of Jim Casey Youth Opportunities Initiative. Gary has done a great deal of work to help create and support systems for Nebraska's foster youth as they age out of care.

The luncheon will also feature the exhibition of the Forever Families photography exhibit, and poetry by Project Everlast youth.

 

Tickets: $75/each or $750/table
