Our annual fundraiser was amazing, because we met Steve Pemberton, who climbed out of a foster care system that had forgotten about him, and became a success against all odds.  In 2015, Pemberton was awarded the prestigious Horizon Award by the US Congress, presented to private sector individuals who have contributed to expanding opportunities for Americans through their own personal contributions, and who have set exceptional examples for young people through their successes in life.  A Chance in the World is the unbelievably true story of this wounded and broken boy who was destined to become a man of resilience, determination, and vision. One of the best keynote speakers we’ve ever heard, he had the crowd alternately laughing and in tears.
