Each year, the young people who participate in our Conquerors program look forward to the annual Friends of the Conquerors Fundraising Luncheon and this year didn't disappoint. Not only does this event provide vital funds to support these young people, but it also gives them a chance to spend time with people who have an interest in both their present and their future. The young people sit at the tables, get to know the luncheon guests and some even give their testimony on stage.
This year, 631 guests were welcomed by 75 table hosts who made the commitment to fill their tables with people who were anxious to get an update on what's going on as well as hear what future plans include. As in years past, our guests included people representing the legal, law enforcement and judicial systems as well as leaders from all levels of Metro government. Ben Hall, News Channel 5, was our master of ceremonies again this year and welcomed dignitaries and young people to the stage. At the end of the day, more than $116,000 was donated as an investment in the futures of these young people and we are extremely thankful for that generosity.
