Darrell Scott will be the headline speaker for the Third Annual Mayor’s Prayer Luncheon to be held at the Kaua‘i Marriott Beach Resort Ballroom at 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., March 24.
Hawai‘i Lt. Gov. James ‘Duke’ Aiona, Mayor Bryan Baptiste and other leaders in government are planning to attend.
Darrell Scott’s daughter, Rachel, was one of the students who died in the Columbine High School massacre in 1999. Since the tragic loss of his daughter, Scott founded a school program known as “Rachel’s Challenge” that is being implemented in schools all over the country to address school violence and bullying. He has spoken to over 5 million people in live settings around the world, not counting the millions he has spoken to through popular programs such as Oprah, Larry King Live, CNN, Today Show, O’Rielly Factor, Hannity and Colmes, Good Morning America on ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC, C-SPAN, and others. Scott has been featured in Time magazine and quoted in periodicals such as Newsweek and The New York Times. He has authored or co-authored five books, and meets with politicians, including President George W. Bush, educators, and members of congress concerning issues of school violence.
The Third Annual Mayor’s Prayer Luncheon is an opportunity for the community to gather and pray for all areas that impact island life, including businesses, government, judiciary, police, schools, families, youth, churches, and marriages, to seek direction for the future of Kaua‘i and thank God for the blessings that we enjoy.
This event is not funded by the Mayor’s Office or the County of Kaua‘i. It is sponsored by island churches, businesses, concerned individuals and other organizations. Tickets for the event are $30 each which include a great meal, music, hula, a season of prayers and fellowship. They are available through Kaua‘i Island Ministries at 246-0774 or from Dely Sasaki at 652-2237. Deadline for reservations is tomorrow.
