Danny Glover has been a commanding presence on screen, stage and television for more than 25 years. As an actor, his film credits range from the blockbuster “Lethal Weapon” franchise to smaller independent features, some of which Glover also produced. Currently, he is working with the “Criminal Minds” TV series in a guest appearance for this season. At the same time, he has also gained respect for his emphasis on advocacy for economic justice, focusing on issues of poverty, disease, and economic development.
“After reading about the wonderful work the Alma Randolph Charitable Foundation is doing in Owensboro, Kentucky, it was not a difficult decision for me to agree to accept the invitation to be the Keynote Speaker for their fundraising event,” Glover said in a press release.
Over the past 22 years, the Alma Randolph Charitable Foundation has hosted fundraising events designed to draw people from all social, racial, religious and political affiliations. This event will bring a very diverse group of individuals together in our beautiful Owensboro Convention Center for a common cause. The ARCF has clothed 15,130 children and our net proceeds exceed $1,152,593.
