Rainbow Days will host its 25th annual Pot of Gold Luncheon at the Omni Dallas Hotel Dallas Ballroom on Friday, April 29, 2022.

Rainbow Days is thrilled to announce the 2022 Pot of Gold Luncheon Keynote Speaker is Caylin Moore. A celebrated author and sought-after inspirational speaker, Caylin will invigorate audiences with wisdom from his journey of overcoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles to striving to leave the world better than he found it.

His work has been featured by Good Morning America, Sirius XM Radio, ABC News, NBC LA, Home and Family, Hallmark Channel, and The 700 Club amongst other media outlets. His book was named a Good Morning America Anchor’s Favorite Books of 2019, was an Amazon Bestseller in Sociology of Urban Areas and came out in paperback in June 2020.

The annual luncheon is a cheerful and celebratory event that features an inspiring keynote speaker, special performances from the Rainbow Days children and moving program testimonials for an anticipated 500 guests in attendance. The Pot of Gold festivities also include a silent auction, which will open online on April 20.
