On Wednesday, November 5th from 7:00-8:30am, DuPagePads will host its most inspirational event, the 12th Annual Wake Up Your Spirit Breakfast at Benedictine University in Lisle. This will be a truly uplifting event and an excellent way to start your day!
During the event, Carol Simler, President & CEO of DuPagePads, will highlight new programs, current developments and discuss the future plans of the organization. Next, one of our program participants will share their story of how DuPagePads walked side-by-side with them on their journey from homelessness to a place to call “home.” The event will then close with our keynote speaker, Jarrett Payton.
Jarrett Payton is the son of former Chicago Bears running back, Walter Payton. Like his father, Jarrett has a passion for community service and has positively impacted the lives of hundreds of children and adolescents, including those that are homeless through his foundation. “We are thrilled to have Jarrett Payton as our Keynote Speaker. His dedication and passion for giving back to the community is awe-inspiring,” says Carol.
The breakfast will begin at 7:00 and end promptly at 8:30.
The proceeds from the Wake Up Your Spirit Breakfast will support families and individuals who are homeless to obtain housing, support services and employment. Please join us for this wonderful event on November 5th and be a part of the solution to end homelessness!
Tickets are available for a discounted rate if purchased on or before October 17th. For more information about the event and to purchase tickets please visit our webpage: DuPage Pads Events
