Mooers Award Reception and Dinner with Foundation Live Auction

Friday, November 18
5:15 pm. - 6:30 p.m. Reception and Foundation Live Auction
6:45 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. Mooers Award Dinner

Joining us this year at the black-tie (optional) Mooers Award Dinner is entertainer, comedian, and musician Mike Rayburn, an inspirational thought leader and artist. Drawing from his success as an entrepreneur as well as a Carnegie Hall headliner, Rayburn is a master at increasing profitability and impact by inspiring your team to become possibility thinkers and virtuoso performers… all by daring you to ask the question, “What if…?”


During his “What If…?” conversation, Rayburn uses his amazing guitar work and hilarious comedy as a metaphor, to illustrate three tools designed to turn your team into an army of innovators with the peak performance skills to transcend the status quo to stop managing change, and lead by creating change.

We’re confident you’ll enjoy his profoundly inspirational and entertaining message at the Mooers Award Dinner on Friday evening!
