Over 350 Attend Kids Can Community Center’s Can Do Luncheon
Kids Can Community Center’s (www.KidsCan.org) 15th annual Can Do Luncheon was a great success! It was held on April 18 at the Omaha Marriott in the Capitol District. Over 350 attendees grooved with Nelson Mandela Elementary School’s Meerkat Melodies choir as they found their seats. The event emcee, John Knicely, began the program and five amazing community members and organizations were recognized for their hard work to educate, engage, and inspire children.
This year’s Can Do Award recipients included St. Luke Teen Center, Alexis Varoz-Norval, Christine E. Cutucache, Patrick Dougherty, and DeAngelo Grant.
This year’s keynote speaker was Dr. Cheryl Logan, who began her position as superintendent of Omaha Public Schools in July of 2018. She spoke about the experiences that led her to this position and passionately discussed the positive effect that quality educators have on youth in the community. At the end of the event, five lucky raffle winners were announced.
