Daniel Island Speaker Series With Scotty Parker

January 24 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Daniel Island Speaker Series - Scotty Parker

13-year old Scotty Parker will be the speaker. You’ve read about him in the Post and Courier and have seen him on TV. Now you have a chance to meet him and his family.

Scotty Parker is a young man on a mission. This past summer Scotty spent eight weeks bicycling from Santa Monica, CA to the Water Missions headquarters in North Charleston. The purpose of the journey was to raise money for Water Missions. He succeeded. To date that sum is an astonishing $622,000.

For Scotty, fundraising is now old hat. On his 8th birthday in lieu of birthday presents he asked for donations to WMI. He raised $618. When he was 10 he bicycled across South Carolina for WMI. That trip raised $70,000. And now this.

How did this boy develop such a passion for helping others? How did he convince his parents to let him pursue a seemingly crazy adventure? What’s next for Scotty?

Scotty’s dad, Steve Parker, will also provide a parent’s perspective on all this. What are they doing as a family that somehow instilled this caring spirit in their son? To accomplish such a feat Scotty needed their support. Scotty not only convinced them that this cross-country adventure was a good idea, he talked them into joining him! How in the world did he do that?

This is an opportunity for you to hear from a rather extraordinary young man and his loving family who supported him every step of the way.

Doors open at 6:30 pm; the program starts at 7 pm, and will conclude around 8:00 pm. Business casual attire is appropriate.

This program, now in its sixth year, is sponsored jointly by The Rotary Club of Daniel Island, the Daniel Island Community Fund, the Daniel Island Business Association, and the Daniel Island Club.
