George Foreman to speak at December event for United Way

JACKSON, Tenn. — United Way of West Tennessee will host Unitas, an 80th anniversary celebration in December with speaker George Foreman.

The event will be held December 16 at the Carl Perkins Civic Center starting at 6 p.m., according to a news release.

Foreman is a former heavyweight champion, pastor, author and entrepreneur.

Attendees will be able to enjoy dinner, a silent auction and live music, in addition to a keynote speech from Foreman, the release says.

“Foreman’s story is a great example of how someone’s beginnings do not have to determine their end. Anyone, given the opportunity, can be empowered to make a difference,” said United Way of West Tennessee president and CEO Matt Marshall. “Here at United Way, we strive to do the same, and we invite a world champion to come encourage a community of champions.”

Sponsorships and tickets are available here.
