The 19th annual Pot of Gold Luncheon benefiting the programs, services, and at- risk children of Rainbow Days, Inc. will take place on Friday, April 15, 2016 at the Omni Dallas Hotel (555 S. Lamar, Dallas, 75201) at noon. Leigh Anne Tuohy will headline the luncheon as this year's guest speaker.


Dubbed a warrior princess by Michael Lewis in his New York Times best-selling book, The Blind Side, Leigh Anne is the inspirational matriarch who has dedicated her life to inspiring hope and genuine acts of generosity for all deserving - but underserved - members of our communities. After opening her heart and home to Michael Oher, a homeless African American teen, Leigh Anne says the experience was life-changing. As described in her most recent book, Turn Around: Reach Out, Give Back, and Get Moving, Leigh Anne is a nationally recognized motivational speaker, New York Times best-selling author, television personality, and co-founder of the Making It Happen Foundation, a charitable organization whose ultimate mission is to improve the standard of living and quality of life for all the children fighting to survive in the invisible cracks of our society. She challenges readers to reconsider what it means to give sacrificially, generously, and immediately, often times without ever having to leave your own community.


In our fast paced, get ahead world, Leigh Anne's true life story is an example we all need to follow - taking time to 'turn around' and truly 'see' the people and situations that need our attention said Rainbow Days' Founder and CEO Cathey Brown. It would be easy to be overwhelmed by the tremendous needs the thousands of children we serve each year have. That is just one reason we are excited for Leigh Anne to share her story and remind us that we're capable of doing, being and giving more than we may think.


Luncheon Chair, Catherine Rowsey and Auction Co-Chairs Nicole Williams and Jon Langbert anticipate more than 600 attendees thanks to the highly anticipated silent auction, raffle items and a special performance by nationally recognized children's performer Eddie Coker accompanied by the children of Rainbow Days.


Mrs. Nancy Ann Hunt, 2012 Luncheon Honoree said, I continue to support Rainbow Days because they are an organization that is dedicated to their mission of helping thousands of children and youth in need in our community.


Underwriting and sponsorships are available starting at the $1,500 level, and individual tickets start at $150. Contact Julia Santosuosso at 214-217-3833, via email at julias 'at' rainbowdays.org or visit the website for more information at:
