7TH ANNUAL HEROES OF A PRECIOUS CHILD LUNCHEON
Presented by FTI Consulting

2021 HEROES OF A PRECIOUS CHILD LUNCHEON
Presented by FTI Consulting

Our Annual Heroes of A Precious Child Luncheon brings together business leaders, community members and elected officials as we honor individuals currently making a difference in the lives of children in need, and will inspire others to learn more about A Precious Child and the vital work we do.

The 2021 luncheon will be a virtual event, featuring inspirational stories from children and families we’ve had the privilege of serving, in addition to a powerful keynote speaker, Michael Oher, former NFL player and whose life the film, The Blind Side, was based. Although there is no cost to attend, this event is one of our most significant fundraisers of the year, supporting our mission and providing for disadvantaged and displaced children in Colorado. All members of the community are welcome, so join us as we honor our heroes!

Keynote Speaker – Michael Oher

Michael Oher knows what it takes to beat the odds. As a child growing up in the Hurt Village public housing development in Memphis, Tennessee, he began life with all the cards stacked against him. Violence, neglect, and near constant hunger were the ever-present backdrop of his childhood. He and his siblings were in and out of foster care and, at times, homeless.

“Kids like me usually don’t get to see their dreams come true,” Michael said, “It’s sad, but it’s true. Happy endings just don’t happen in the ghetto unless you’re willing to make them yourself.”

From the time he was small, Michael was determined to do just that, but he knows kids like him need more than a vision and the determination to reach it. They need caring adults to come alongside them in practical ways to help turn the odds in their favor.

Michael played football for The University of Mississippi, where he was an All-American athlete. He graduated in 2009 and was drafted into the NFL by the Baltimore Ravens that same year. After five seasons in Baltimore, Michael played with the Tennessee Titans, and then the Carolina Panthers, for a total of eight seasons in the NFL.

Michael Oher’s incredible story is the subject of Michael Lewis 2006 book The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game. His storyline in the book was subsequently adapted for the film, The Blind Side, which was nominated for an Academy Award in the Best Picture category. This year’s keynote speaker is sponsored by The Corley Legacy Foundation.
