The Pot of Gold Luncheon benefits Rainbow Days through sponsorships, individual seats, auction bidding and donations. 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.
Silent Auction: Opens online Wednesday, June 16.
Speaker: Best-selling author Josh Shipp. Statistically, Josh should be dead, in jail or homeless. However, his success as a preeminent author, speaker and global youth empowerment expert is living proof of the power of one caring adult. A former at-risk foster kid turned youth advocate, Josh is renowned for the documentary TV series on A&E that followed his groundbreaking work with youth and families. He has written two national bestsellers to date and is regularly called on by OPRAH, CNN, FOX, The New York Times, 20/20, Good Morning America and others to provide commentary on common challenges faced by parents and teachers.
Goal: This year’s goal is to raise $275,000 for Rainbow Days to continue providing critical services benefiting thousands of at-risk and homeless children and youth across the Dallas area each year.
Sponsorships/Tickets: Table sponsorships start at $2,000 and individual tickets are $200 per person, both of which are available to purchase online at www.RainbowDays.org/POG2021 or by phone at (214) 217-3833.
