Join Emerge for the 2019 Mother of the Year Luncheon! 


This year's luncheon features our 2019 Mother of the Year, who will share her incredible journey of courage and strength throughout her experience with domestic abuse.

Our Keynote Speaker this year is Wade A. Davis.

Former NFL Player Wade Davis is a corporate inclusion and culture advisor at Netflix, Google, Viacom and the NFL. Wade is a Global Champion for Innovation for UN Women and a collaborator with #MeToo and Time’s Up Now. With his experience, he will inspire attendees with ways we can all answer the call to end domestic abuse in our community. 

The luncheon will also include a raffle and silent auction, and an award ceremony to honor those in the community who have answered the call to end domestic abuse.
