6th Annual WINGS luncheon features Ron Hall and Denver Moore, co-authors of Same Kind of Different as Me benefitting New Friends New Life

Kay H. Neve and Jessie O’Brien, Luncheon Co-Chairs

Mark your calendars for April 6, 2009!

 

New Friends New Life is honored to announce that Ron Hall and Denver Moore, authors of Same Kind of Different as Me, have agreed to serve as guest speakers at the 6th Annual New Friends New Life WINGS Luncheon.

The dynamic author and international art dealer and his co-laborer will share their story of faith and friendship at this luncheon benefiting New Friends New Life on April 6, 2009, at the Belo Mansion in downtown Dallas.

Ron Hall has dedicated his time to helping the homeless and, through an unlikely friendship he developed with Denver Moore at a Fort Worth shelter, he re-evaluated his past and changed his future in surprising, unexpected ways. 

Denver Moore touches the lives of everyone he meets, embracing the homeless and preaching the word of God.  This heartfelt and often humorous story shares the journey of two men from opposite backgrounds and what they both learned during this incredible journey.

Today, most of these women have conventional jobs, are self-sufficient and have gained additional education.  Fewer than one in five women return to their former lifestyles.

From the press release about the movie:

After more than 20 inquiries, Hall and Moore signed a contract for the movie rights for a major motion picture with Mark Clayman, who was the Executive Producer of The Pursuit of Happyness.  The movie is in the beginning stages, as they have met with studio writers who are working to adapt Same Kind of Different as Me into a screenplay.  Same Kind of Different as Me is the most inspirational and emotionally gripping story of faith, fortitude and friendship I have ever read.  A powerful example of the healing, restorative power of forgiveness and the transformational life changing power of unconditional love,” says Clayman.
