715 Locust St. Evansville 812-435-5770 October 1 -Evansville Celebration of Diversity Distinguished Lecture with Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy For Leigh Anne and Sean, it all begins with family. Leigh Anne, the daughter of a tough-as-nails U.S. Marshal, decided early on that her mission was to raise children who would become “cheerful givers.” Sean, who grew up poor, believed that one day he could provide a home that would be “a place of miracles.” Together, they raised two remarkable children—Collins and Sean Jr.—who shared their deep Christian faith and their commitment to making a difference. And then one day Leigh Anne met a homeless African-American boy named Michael and decided that her family could be his. She and her husband taught Michael what this book teaches all of us: Everyone has a blind side, but a loving heart always sees a path toward true charity. The remarkable couple depicted in the film The Blind Side- in their own words, are telling their deeply inspiring story at the Evansville Celebration of Diversity Distinguished Lecture Series. Admission is free! The lecture begins at 7 p.m. October 20 – Centre’d on Kids Trick or Treat All Ghosts and Goblins are invited to the free SMG Evansville Kids Halloween party formerly called the Main Street
