Second “Blue Sky Luncheon” a Smash Hit

Posted at March 26, 2014 by Comments Off on Second “Blue Sky Luncheon” a Smash Hit

A Legacy of Giving has hit another grand slam with their 2nd “Blue Sky Luncheon.” Guests arrived en masse at the Four Seasons Hotel to support the mission of the organization: To empower children through philanthropy education and youth philanthropy programs to become more engaged in improving their communities and world. Event Chairs Shannon Meroney and Heidi Marquez Smith delighted in the turnout. As the crowd settled in, Rodney Molitor (Cook-Walden) provided the opening remarks. It was then time to salute the Honorary Chairs Lynn Meredith and John Minter. Executive Director Linda C. Brucker also provided greetings before yielding to the student voices of Makenna Mabon (Covington Middle School), Sam Chanow (St. Francis School), Scott Brown (Gabriel’s Catholic School) and Makayla Wright (Reagan High School). Each of them were singularly expressive in talking about philanthropy.

Keynote Speaker Kevin Carroll was, to put it mildly, phenomenal with his message of hope, dreams, perseverance and dedication. Kevin is the author of “Rules of the Red Rubber Ball” currently printed by ESPN Books. His life is one of joyous achievement despite numerous obstacles. Abandoned by first his father and then his mother, by age 6 Kevin and his brother went to live with their grandparents. The playground and sports became his method of advancement, which continues to this day.
