All proceeds to benefit Murphy-Harpst and other childcare ministries
ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--“The Allen Hunt Show,” a syndicated talk radio show that focuses on “where real life and faith come together,” today announced its annual benefit luncheon will be held on Thursday, Feb. 28, 2008 at 11:30 a.m. The luncheon will feature University of Georgia (UGA) football coach, Mark Richt; and accomplished author, businessman and radio talk show host, Herman Cain.
Now in its second year, the fundraising event will bring Atlanta together to benefit youth in Georgia. Keynote speaker Mark Richt has demonstrated his leadership skills as UGA’s head football coach. UGA has won two Southeastern Conference Championships and earned four Southeastern Conference division titles. As former offensive coordinator for the Florida State Seminoles, he led his team to two national championships. Herman Cain, former chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City and leader of many economic growth and tax organizations, will emcee the luncheon.
The luncheon will benefit Murphy-Harpst, a behavior healthcare organization for children, as well as other children’s ministries. With campuses in Northwest Georgia, Murphy-Harpst is a non-profit organization that provides support for children battling emotional and behavioral problems. The organization is divided into two campuses, each equipped with specialized staff that cares for children in need. The Harpst Campus provides community programs, foster care and residential treatment for youths age 6-17, and the Murphy Campus provides community-focused programs for 150 4-year-old children.
“Children and youth are an integral part of our future,” said Allen Hunt. “Not only that, but many have been marked as unimportant because of neglect, abuse or past failures. Our hope is to provide financial support for programs that redirect our youth in today’s society. This event provides an important avenue for us to demonstrate the values that our radio show so strongly stands for.”
The event will be held at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, located at 2800 Cobb Galleria Parkway in Atlanta, Georgia. Tickets are $100 per person or $5,000 for VIP or corporate sponsorships. VIP and corporate sponsors will receive tickets for a table of 10 and an invitation to an after-lunch reception and photo opportunity with Coach Richt.
