(PRESS RELEASE)_The YMCA of the Palm Beaches will host its 10th Annual Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday, December 11 at The Breakers Palm Beach. The breakfast begins at 7:45 a.m. and culminates at 9:15 a.m.
This year's featured speaker is NFL’s all-time leading rusher, three-time Super Bowl Champion, NFL Hall of Famer and Winner of Dancing with the Stars, Season 3, Emmitt Smith.
Smith was born and raised in Pensacola, Fla., and had dreams of playing for the Dallas Cowboys ever since he was a child. Even after being told more than once that he was too small for football, Smith proved his critics wrong and went on to play for the University of Florida, setting numerous records, many of which remain unbroken. In 1990, he was drafted by the Cowboys and went on to play 15 years in the NFL, setting even more records that, to this day, remain unsurpassed. In recent years, Smith transitioned to real estate development, owning and operating a portfolio of businesses in the commercial real estate development, construction and finance industries.
Honorary Chairs for the event are Dan and Denise Hanley, longtime supporters of the YMCA of the Palm Beaches.
The event is an annual sell-out and attracts more than 500 guests, including community leaders and residents, elected officials, educators, and influential representatives from area places of worship.
Individual VIP tickets are on sale for $500/ticket and include a Meet + Greet with Emmitt Smith prior to the breakfast, and general seating tickets are between $220-$300. For info, please call 561.968.9622, ext. 237 or email Peter Thate: firstname.lastname@example.org.
