Connect with the community's most influential philanthropists at one of Orange County's premier fundraising events. Now in its 14th year, this event celebrates the power of philanthropy and the women who are leading the charge to change local conditions. Take advantage of this opportunity to support the Women's Philanthropy Fund Breakfast and help us change the future of Orange County's next generation.
Our keynote speaker is Leigh Anne Tuohy, a remarkable woman who inspires others to recognize the full potential of individuals in their communities. In 2004, Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy were raising two children, when they added a new member to their family by legally adopting a teenage foster child. They raised him, ensured he got a good education and encouraged his passion for football. With unlimited love, support and protection, that once homeless and hopeless seventeen-year-old boy grew to be none other than NFL Super Bowl Champion, Michael Oher.
Michael's story was chronicled in the best-selling book, The Blind Side: Evolution of a Game, which was later adapted into the film The Blind Side, starring Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock as Leigh Anne. Leigh Anne's inspirational journey is proof that when we give a bit of ourselves to other people, we can make the world a better place and perhaps, even save a life.
