Thank you to everyone who supported our SOLD OUT Achievers’ Luncheon on Monday, May 1, 2023, at the South Congress Hotel. We had an amazing day full of inspiration and great company and left the Luncheon challenged to do better for our community and to help more individuals and their families break the cycles of intergenerational poverty for good.

We’d also like to give a special thank you to our generous Achievers’ Luncheon sponsors!

Dream Come True Foundation Impact Award Recipients: Tana & Scott Gordon

The opportunity to make an impact is what drives many of us to success. Creating social impact that changes people lives is in a league of its own.

Moving people out of poverty changes multiple generations of lives. We have initiated a new award to recognize this kind of momentous impact, The Dream Come True Foundation Impact Award.

In recognition of their support and momentum in serving more families, we honor Tana & Scott Gordon with this award and say thank for your partnership in solving poverty.
