Pattern For Progress Annual Event

September 24 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

$195

Special Guest:   Wes Moore, CEO of the Robin Hood Foundation and best selling author of The Other Wes Moore.

Two kids named Wes Moore were born blocks apart within a year of each other. Both grew up fatherless in similar Baltimore neighborhoods and had difficult childhoods; both hung out on street corners with their crews; both ran into trouble with the police. How, then, did one grow up to be a Rhodes Scholar, decorated veteran, White House Fellow, and business leader, while the other ended up a convicted murderer serving a life sentence? Wes Moore, the author of this fascinating book, sets out to answer this profound question. In alternating narratives that take readers from heart-wrenching losses to moments of surprising redemption, The Other Wes Moore tells the story of a generation of boys trying to find their way in a hostile world.
This will be an evening of great conversation, entertainment and celebration.
