Rainbow Days will host its 26th annual Pot of Gold Luncheon at the Westin Dallas Galleria on Friday, May 5, 2023. The 2023 Pot of Gold Luncheon Keynote Speaker is Coach Ken Carter, a celebrated author, philanthropist and powerhouse speaker, who is best known for being the inspiration behind the hit movie, Coach Carter.
Ken Carter is best known for being the inspiration behind the hit movie, Coach Carter, the 2005 movie based on making headlines for suspending his undefeated basketball team due to poor academic performance.
Coach Carter promotes the importance of education and mentorship and works to enable disadvantaged youth to reach their full academic and life potential. Coach has been amongst the presence of many greats, such as the President of the United States of America, a well-known TV host and a list of talented stars from films and music. He will invigorate the Pot of Gold audience with a message of teamwork, accountability, integrity and leadership.
“Coach Carter’s story is marked by his unwavering commitment to helping youth from marginalized communities succeed in school and life. Similar to Rainbow Days, Coach Carter is passionate about teaching youth important character qualities, such as perseverance, goal-setting and hard work, and challenging them to always do their best,” said Tiffany Beaudine, CEO of Rainbow Days. “Those who join us for the Pot of Gold luncheon will no doubt leave inspired and motivated to pursue excellence in their personal lives and be driven to affect change in our own community by investing in the lives of young people.”
Additionally, Rainbow Days is thrilled to have Shannon Murray as its 2023 Pot of Gold Luncheon Emcee. Murray is an anchor and reporter for the top-rated Good Day on Fox 4 News.
Pot of Gold Luncheon Chairs are Caleb and Brittany Bachelor. In addition to serving as a member of Rainbow Days’ Executive Board of Directors, Caleb is a Senior Manager at Connor Group and a Southlake resident. Brittany is the Director of Finance & Chief Compliance Officer at Sky Island Capital.
“Caleb and I are beyond excited to co-chair the Rainbow Days’ Pot of Gold luncheon this year,” said Brittany. “Through his service as a board member over the last couple of years, we have seen firsthand the amazing things this organization is doing for at-risk kids in Dallas.”
The Pot of Gold Luncheon raises needed support for Rainbow Days programs through sponsorships, individual seats, auction bidding and donations. The annual luncheon is a cheerful and celebratory event that features an inspiring keynote speaker, special performances from the Rainbow Days children and moving program testimonials for an anticipated 500 guests in attendance. The Pot of Gold festivities also includes a silent auction, which will open online on April 26 through May 5, 2023.
The 2023 Pot of Gold Luncheon festivities will begin at 11 a.m. with silent auction bidding, and the luncheon program will begin promptly at noon.
