D.J.’s Hero Awards Luncheon

Featured speaker Kurt Warner will bring a message of leadership, motivation and inspiration to guests attending the D.J.’s Hero Awards Luncheon.  Seats are still available for the Monday, May 3 luncheon at Qwest Center Omaha.  Individual seats are $85.00. 



Warner, recently retired quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals and two-time NFL MVP, gives God the credit for his ability to play football.  The acclaimed athlete, Iowa native and father of seven will talk about the struggles he’s faced in life.

The annual luncheon will honor seven D.J.’s Hero Scholarship Award recipients from Nebraska for their commitment to others and to their community. Honorees, ages 17-19, will receive a $5,000 academic scholarship.

The awards are named after D.J. Sokol, son of David and Peggy Sokol of Omaha, who lost his courageous battle with cancer at the age of 18. Through the D.J.’s Hero Awards, his memory lives on through the recipients who share his qualities of dedication to faith, selfless acts for others, the ability to overcome adversity and commitment to the community.  

The luncheon is sponsored by Pinnacle Bank, MidAmerican Energy Holdings Company, Fred Arkoosh, Jr. Foundation, The Salvation Army and KETV. Sid & Dawn Dinsdale are serving as co-chairs of the 2010 luncheon.
