Description

Join us October 12 at 6:30pm at Rock Springs Center for an evening of fine food, engaging speakers and community inclusion, all while supporting our mission! ECVC is a private not-for-profit corporation that provides job training and employment services to persons with disabilities in Pitt and its surrounding counties in Eastern North Carolina.

Our mission is to help persons with disabilities attain a higher quality of life through achievement of their vocational goals. Each year at our banquet, we proudly share our employees, employers, our guest speaker and their stories with our community. Each serve as examples of courage, determination, and unwavering persistence to be included in our society just as they are, just as they should be.

Our keynote speaker this year will be Ronan Tynan. Dr. Ronan Tynan is truly a modern day “Renaissance Man.” Faced with numerous challenges throughout his well-documented life, he has persevered with enormous passion and determination. He attributes his success to his faith and the knowledge that the Man Above guides him through every door he opens. Introduced to international audiences as a member of the Irish Tenors, Tynan quickly became known for his unique voice and irresistible appeal.

Following his mother’s advice to always follow your dreams, Tynan decided to launch a solo career, and has achieved the fame and adoration that could have existed only in the farthest reaches of his dreams. Though Ronan enjoyed singing as a boy, he did not seriously consider formal voice study until he was 33, when he was well into his residency as a physician. His quick success is a typical development in a life of extraordinary achievement.


Born with lower limb disability that threatened to sideline him throughout his childhood, Tynan was still “as wild as a March hare” when he was a growing boy, riding horses and racing motorcycles. When he was twenty, his legs had to be amputated below the knee after an auto accident caused serious complications. Just weeks after the operation, he was climbing up the steps of his college dorm, and within a year, he was winning gold medals in the Paralympics as a multitalented athlete. Between 1981 and 1984, Tynan amassed eighteen gold medals and fourteen world records of which he still holds nine.
We can't wait to hear Ronan's message as he shares his inspirational story with us on this special evening.


Individual reservations are $50/guest or $400/table (seats 8). Sponsorship levels begin at $500. This event is a sit-down dinner.
