"Blind Side" couple share their inspirational story of love and charity at Ann Nicole Nelson Hall Dec. 28
In 2004, Leigh Anne and Sean Tuohy, took in homeless Micheal Oher to live with them, and later adopted him. Their journey of transforming a destitute, aimless Oher to a college graduate and a NFL first round draft pick is an unforgettable lesson in giving.
The Tuohys inspired the movie "The Blind Side", and will share their deeply moving journey of faith and love at Ann Nicole Nelson Hall Wednesday, Dec. 28, at 12:45 p.m. A free will offering will be taken with proceeds benefiting the Minot Area Homeless Coalition, Domestic Violence Crisis Center and the YWCA daycare program. A live silent auction will also take place prior to the presentation. Doors open at 11 a.m.
A VIP event will be hosted at 11:30 a.m. in the Doris Slaaten Business Center on the third floor of Old Main, on the MSU campus. Limited tickets are available and sell for $100, which include a light lunch, reserved seating at the presentation and a book signing of In a Heartbeat: Sharing the Power of Cheerful Giving, Tuohys' personal account in their own words. For VIP tickets, call 701-857-6450.
The event is sponsored by the Minot Alliance of Non-Profits.
