Keynote Speaker

Our keynote speaker is Leigh Anne Tuohy from the blockbuster movie “The Blind Side.” A nationally recognized child advocate, Leigh Anne will share with our distinguished guests her own journey as an adoptive parent and foster care proponent. The Tuohys believe everyone needs a defender and a champion. She will speak from her heart the message that all people need to be valued equally and that hope, love and opportunity can change a life. “In our home, we believe that families don’t have to match.”

 

Live music

The Way Down Wanderers are a high-energy Illinois quintet often referred to as one of the hardest-working, hardest-touring bands on the circuit today. They sing like angels but write songs with guts that are unmistakably earthbound. The quintet’s years on the road have built a devoted grassroots following, which the band cherishes.

“21st-century string music delivered by a vocalist with the nasal affectation of Dylan”
