Pot of Gold Luncheon
On April 19th, 2013, nearly 500 guests gathered at the Hilton Anatole for Rainbow Days' 16th Annual Pot of Gold Luncheon, which raised $189,134 in support of Rainbow Days programs and services. Rainbow Days' positive and life-changing impact was made evident from the beginning when children's entertainer, Eddie Coker, and the Children of Rainbow Days got everyone on their feet and dancing to Eddie's song "Interaction." After this electrifying performance, guests enjoyed lunch while listening to remarks by this year's Honorary Chair Sheryl Adkins-Green, Chief Marketing Officer at Mary Kay Inc., Rainbow Days' Founder and CEO Cathey Brown, and Jessica Thorne of Taber Okon Thorne & Carr and past Board President of Rainbow Days who spoke on behalf of all the Campaign Donors.
Rainbow Days wishes to express gratitude to this year's media sponsors, Grand Luxe and Park Cities News, our major sponsors (click here for a list of 2013 Sponsors), our silent auction donors, and the luncheon co-chairs, Carriea Flowers and Dr. Michele Williams, who worked tirelessly alongside a committed team, who were instrumental in making this lunch not only possible, but the best yet!
The words spoken by Elizabeth, a Rainbow Days participant and interviewee at the luncheon, after the conclusion of the luncheon summarizes why we do what we do, "Thank you for all of your hard work on the luncheon. It shows how much everyone cares and supports all of us kids. Rainbow Days helped me during a difficult time. I love Rainbow Days because everyone here really cares about me."

Rainbow Days is proud to partner with Eddie Coker and his new venture, Wezmore. Wezmore is all about building up youth – their self-esteem, self-understanding and instilling in them a sense of acceptance and gratitude. Would you like to bring Wezmore to your school? Through Rainbow Days’ philanthropic partnership with Eddie Coker, donors have the opportunity to help bring Wezmore to students at schools who have little access to these kinds of monies as well as to provide scholarship money to the schools in Texas that do have these types of discretionary funds.
