Hasbrook Award Luncheon

November 10, 2016
2016 Hasbrook Award Luncheon Speaker, Josh Sundquist

The Thomas C. Hasbrook Award Luncheon recognizes the accomplishments of the people who help make our community great. This year's keynote is by Paralympian, best-selling author and motivational speaker Josh Sundquist. The Hasbrook Luncheon is a great business networking and inspirational opportunity. The award is named for Thomas C. Hasbrook, who lost his sight in combat during WWII, in honor of his accomplishments and dedication to the community. 

More about Josh Sundquist

Josh has spoken across the world to groups ranging from Fortune 500 companies to inner city public schools to the White House. At age nine Josh Sundquist was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer and given a fifty percent chance to live. He spent a year on chemotherapy treatments and his left leg was amputated. Doctors declared Josh cured of the disease at age thirteen and he took up ski racing three years later. He trained for the next six years and in 2006 he was named to the US Paralympic Ski Team for the 2006 Paralympics in Turino, Italy.

This fundraising event, which recognizes outstanding people and companies, was a sell-out last year. This business luncheon serves up inspiration and raises critical funds for employment and training programs for people who are blind or visually impaired. We also invite you to learn more about our Bosma Visionary Opportunities Foundation.
