Alpha-Omega Miracle Home (AOMH) will hold its 17th annual Changing Lives fundraising banquet Thursday, Sept. 28 at Anastasia Baptist Church in St. Augustine.
To be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m., the event will feature former University of Florida and professional quarterback Danny Wuerffel as the guest speaker.
Wuerffel is currently the executive director of Desire Street Ministries, an Atlanta-based nonprofit organization that revitalizes impoverished neighborhoods through spiritual and community development. While playing for the Gators, he led Florida to four SEC Championships and the university’s first National Championship title. He won the 1996 Heisman Trophy and the William. V Campbell Award, while also setting 17 NCAA and University of Florida records.
Wuerffel played for the New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears and Washington Redskins in the NFL. He also played in the NFL’s European League, where he won a World Bowl Championship and was selected as the league’s MVP by the European media.
According to AOMH, Wuerffel will use his life experiences playing football and serving in the inner city to inspire the banquet’s attendees to live for something bigger than themselves.
The AOMH event will also feature remarks from former AOMH residents and the organization’s founder, Lisa Franklin, as well as a live auction and dinner catered by Carrabba’s. Dress is business casual. For more information or to register, call 904-823-8588 or visit http://www.aomh.org/.
