Keynote Speaker at 2018 Transforming Lives
The Inaugural Transforming Lives Luncheon, benefiting East Texas Cornerstone Assistance Network, will feature keynote speaker Lucille O’Neal, who will lead a message of “Walk Like You Have Somewhere To Go: Reclaiming Courage & Direction in Life.”
The event starts at 11:30am and will conclude after the luncheon at 1pm. Lucille is the mother of Shaquille O’Neal. She may be the mother of one of the greatest athletes of all time but Lucille O’Neal is much more than just “Shaquille O’Neal’s mom.” Acquainted early in life with turmoil, O’Neal’s circumstances shaped her perspective, strengthening her to overcome the challenges she would later encounter. She has endured poverty, rejection, abuse, addiction, and the illness of a child, yet today her faith and compassion for others is stronger than ever.
Proceeds benefit Cornerstone Assistance Network, which partners, in Christian love, with churches, businesses, and non-profits to assist people in poverty with life transformation.
Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at classy.org/tyler/events/transforming-lives-luncheon/e147226, or by emailing email@example.com. This will be held at Green Acres Crosswalk Center, 1607 Troup Hwy., Tyler.
