We are so thrilled to welcome you back in person this year as we host the 8th Annual MSC Helps Luncheon! We will be following current safety protocols and will also offer a virtual option. Our Keynote Speaker Omari Amili will share his inspiring story and we will present our third Help, Hope, Change award to community volunteer Dan Bogart. We are looking forward to both a safe and inspiring event to support our neighbors in need in South King County!
This is a free event with a suggested donation of $100 and registration is required.
Keynote Speaker: Omari Amili is an author, speaker, and father of six from the Seattle area. Growing up in poverty with parents battling addiction, Omari experienced homelessness, neglect, and chronic instability as a child. Unable to avoid the traps that come along with such an upbringing, Omari found himself traveling down the school-to-prison pipeline, ultimately convicted on 30 felonies for bank fraud. Upon his release, Omari began a life-altering journey that allowed him to climb from a GED to a Master's degree from the University of Washington. His story is evidence that when provided with opportunity and resources, the tragic circumstances that result from poverty can be overcome with prosperity on the other side.
