Kids Can Annual Luncheon
April 18 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Join Kids Can (www.kidscanomaha.org) on Wednesday, April 18 for their annual Can Do Luncheon. The keynote speaker will be Maryum Ali, the eldest child of boxing legend Muhammad Ali’s nine children. Maryum, affectionately known as May May, was born and raised in Chicago, Illinois. As a little girl, her father asked her what she thought her purpose in life was and she replied, “I want to help people.” Ever since, Maryum’s efforts to help people have manifested in a myriad of ways throughout her life.
In addition to hearing Maryum’s story, Kids Can will honor several Can Do Award winners for 2018! This includes Can Do Junior Award recipient, 6th grader Olivia Wallace; the Can Do Future Award, honoring Urban League’s Youth Education and Leadership programs; and Can Do Hope Award recipient Ivan Gilreath, president and CEO of Boys & Girls Club of the Midlands.
The luncheon will be held at the Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District. Tickets are now available for $75 per seat and can be reserved online at www.kidscanomaha.org or by calling (402) 731-6988. Learn how you can support Kids Can’s mission to educate, engage, and inspire children through early childhood care and out-of-school experiences!
