The Honorable Mayor Tom Leppert and Mrs. Laura Leppert are serving as Honorary Chairs for the Pot of Gold Luncheon presented by AT&T and benefiting Rainbow Days, Inc.

         _MG_0053.jpgCarolyn Hess and Jason Hammons, co-chairs of the Pot of Gold luncheon benefiting Rainbow Days, Inc., welcomed committee and guests at a reception at the newly renovated Tower Club of Dallas, which featured remarks by The Honorable Mayor Tom Leppert, who, along with his wife, Laura, are serving as the luncheon’s honorary chairs.

          The Pot of Gold Luncheon is the major annual fundraising event that Rainbow Days, Inc. depends on to raise much needed funds for its children’s programs in support of its mission, to provide children living in high-risk situations with the skills and support they need to overcome adversity and stay drug-free.

        It also serves as a celebration of Rainbow Days’ programs to highlight the agency’s success and to increase awareness in the community.  The attendees have the opportunity to hear recipients of Rainbow Days’ services, share in their own words, how Rainbow Days has had a positive impact on their lives. 

          Slated for Friday, April 17th at the Hilton Anatole Dallas Grand Ballroom, the Pot of Gold luncheon will also feature the announcement of AT&T as our honoree. Each year, Rainbow Days honors one special individual or corporation that has made significant contributions to help further the mission of Rainbow Days by providing children living in high-risk situations with the skills and support they need to overcome adversity and stay drug free.  The person or organization selected has demonstrated an ongoing commitment to support and expand programs of Rainbow Days by providing outstanding volunteer and financial support to the organization.      

 In the past, we have had the privilege of honoring Eddie Coker, Citigroup, & Yahoo!.  In 2007, a Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Mrs. Betty Ford.  In 2008, Rainbow Days honored the Dallas, Grand Prairie and Richardson School Districts for their on-going commitment to “Raising Healthy Children.”
