Calling all insta-moms and bio-moms! The Family Scholar House has launched their “Real MVP” campaign as a lead-up to the organization’s Annual Gala on September 21.
Perhaps you remember NBA superstar Kevin Durant’s acceptance speech when he was awarded the 2014 NBA Most Valuable Player award. Durant thanked his mother, Wanda, for helping him achieve his dreams and referred to her as “The Real MVP”.
Durant’s mother Wanda will be the keynote speaker at this year’s Family Scholar House Gala. Two members of our community will have an opportunity to attend the Gala for free and meet Wanda by participating in the “Real MVP” campaign.
To enter, members of the community are encouraged to share the story of their “Real MVP” or someone who has helped them achieve their goals in life. This could be a parent, educator or anyone who has made a positive impact on their life. Stories can be submitted in writing or in a short video to RealMVP@FamilyScholarHouse.org. All submissions must include a name, phone number and e-mail address.
Stories will be collected through August 18 and one participant will be selected at random to attend the Gala and bring their “Real MVP” with them. Both attendees will have the opportunity to meet Wanda before the event.
For more information about this campaign, please contact Kate Brackett at (502) 813-3086 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
