Glenn Beck Scheduled As Guest Speaker
The Mighty Oaks Foundation will be hosting its 7th Annual Gala on November 3 at The Woodlands Waterway Marriott, in The Waterways, Texas, just outside of Houston. Glenn Beck, American media personality, political commentator and best-selling author, is scheduled to be the event’s guest speaker.
The Gala is a fundraiser for Mighty Oaks Warrior Programs, dedicated to meeting the needs of active-duty military, veterans and their families who are suffering from the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and combat trauma. With an intensive peer-based program for men, women, and couples, Mighty Oaks helps participants overcome any enduring hardship after service to America through instructional sessions, camaraderie, and team building activities.
Past speakers for the Gala have included Sarah Palin, David Barton, and Lt. Gen. (Ret.) William G. “Jerry” Boykin.
“I continue to be amazed by the incredible response we garner from a grateful nation,” stated Mighty Oaks founder Chad Robichaux.“Particularly, the support the foundation receives in Texas is overwhelming; this event sets us up for success throughout the year. We have now served over 1500 warriors as they participate in our programs, and have not yet had one alumni contribute to the veteran suicide rate of over 20 per day. God has truly shown us favor in supporting our warriors.”
Over the past year Glenn Beck has become a great friend to Chad Robichaux and the Mighty Oaks Foundation. Robichaux was a guest on Beck’s nationally syndicated radio show several times in 2017, and Beck has become a personal supporter of the Mighty Oaks Foundation, as well.
In addition to Beck, other highlights scheduled for this year’s Gala include a program overview from Robichaux, a testimonial from Mighty Oaks leader Reed Hastey, and an acoustic performance of the National Anthem from Brad Fite and Kyle Hildebrand, members of The Whisper Mill Band. Fite, a Mighty Oaks alumnus, is also a US Marine combat veteran and Purple Heart recipient.
