KEY NOTE SPEAKER, LIFE SCOUT, TED HAYES
We are very excited to announce our keynote speaker for this year’s event will be Life Scout, Ted Hayes. Ted is considered to be the foremost American advocate for the homeless and founder of Dome City in Los Angeles. Out of the Dome City project, Ted and his eldest son and a British partner created two world renown Cricket teams, they being the LA Krickets (homeless men) and the Compton Homies and POPz (Compton youth and homeless men) which ultimately resulted in the formation of the Compton Cricket Club. Not only will Ted inspire us with truly remarkable stories of his life in sacrificial service to others-which he attributes to the indelible influence of his Scout leaders, but with his own unique Scouting journey which began on a military base in Maryland where he later encountered the iconic American artist, Norman Rockwell at a National BSA youth leadership training conference.
Please consider joining a very special group of corporate leaders and philanthropists who have chosen to invest in the spirit of this marquee event: leadership and character development. They do so by becoming an “Event Sponsor”, thus recognizing the unparalleled achievements of these gifted Scouts. By supporting the Eagle Scout dinner you and your company align yourselves with the very best and brightest of the Boy Scouts of America, the most successful youth leadership development organization in the world. With your event sponsorship you will receive priority seating and your company name/logo will be advertised during the audio-visual portion of the program. Your company will also be provided advertising space with a congratulatory message in the commemorative journal and program that will be provided to each dinner attendee.
