2018 A Chance to Soar Luncheon

Apr 3, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Sponsorship opportunities are now available for our 2018 A Chance to Soar Luncheon.

The 2018 A Chance to Soar Luncheon is a unique opportunity for you to change the lives of children right here in North Texas.  Proceeds from the luncheon help to fund our annual budget shortfall, estimated at $1.28 Million for this fiscal year.  The generous supporters of Jonathan’s Place have helped raise over $750,000 over the course of our luncheons since 2012, and we hope we can count on your support for our upcoming event.

Co-Chairs: Robyn Gould & Linda Wimberly
Honorary Chairs: Shannon & Ted Skokos

We are thrilled to feature as Keynote Speaker Jeannette Walls.

From the pages of her #1 New York Times best-selling book and the critically-acclaimed recently released film, Jeannette Walls moves you to realize the power of the human spirit as she inspires courage in the face of new and longstanding fears, and reveals how our weaknesses can be our greatest strengths.

A celebrated author, Jeannette is best known for her best-selling memoir, “The Glass Castle,” which details her life growing up in extreme poverty and the tale of her emergence from it. Named by Amazon as one of the top 10 books of the decade, in August 2017, her inspiring story was brought to the big screen in one of the most highly-anticipated major motion pictures of the year starring Woody Harrelson, Naomi Watts and Brie Larson as Jeannette.

On stage, Jeannette takes audiences inside her resilient journey in pursuit of authenticity, revealing the power of courage and determination in overcoming unimaginable obstacles.

Audiences are captivated as she reveals bittersweet anecdotes from her past that often exemplify grander truths about courage and the positive rewards that come from confronting challenges. With an unforgettable story of triumph over unrelenting adversity, Jeannette inspires the realization that we’re all stronger than we think, leaving listeners emboldened to face the “demons” in their lives.
