Covering Houston County: Mike Huckabee to Speak at Wiregrass Children's Home Benefit

Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is heading to the Wiregrass next month to lend a helping hand to needy kids.

He'll be the keynote speaker for the 2008 Wiregrass Children's Home Benefit on May 1st at 7pm. The organization provides food, clothing and shelter for abused and neglected children.

Organizers of the event say Huckabee is the perfect choice as speaker.

"When I listened to him more and more on national TV and read his book, I knew he was the right person.

Tickets for the event are $10. If you would like to purchase tickets call (334) 794-6716.

Huckabee Statement:

"Mark Twain said that ‘everyone talks about the weather, but nobody ever does anything about it.'  The same could be said for giving children a better life-everyone talks about it, but nobody does anything about it.  Well, that's not true in Dothan, Alabama.  People are doing something about it, and I am looking forward to saluting the generous and compassionate men and women in the Dothan area who are making a better life available for children through the Wiregrass Children's Home when we gather on May 1.  I'm especially looking forward to seeing Mike Schmitz, whose personal involvement in this effort is one of the reasons for its success.  Dothan area people already had loving hearts and had proven their capacity for hard work, but Mike's leadership has brought out their best.  May 1 will be a great night of inspiration and information.  I'm looking forward to being there."

Mike Huckabee
