On Point’s Annual Cleveland Dinner Features Rory Feek

Tuesday, September 12, 2017

On Point announces Rory Feek as the keynote speaker for On Point Cleveland’s Annual Fundraising Dinner: One Extraordinary Evening on Thursday, Sept. 21. The doors of First Baptist Cleveland will open at 6 p.m., with festivities beginning at 6:30 p.m. All proceeds from the event will be used for On Point Cleveland programming. 

Rory Feek is a father, blogger, author, and one of Nashville’s premiere songwriters. "Roy's blog, ThisLifeILive.com, follows the love story of him and his late wife, Joey, and her battle with cancer, which has been an inspiration to over 2.3 million Facebook followers through the vignettes of unwavering faith and hope," officials said.

His memoir, This Life I Live: One Man’s Extraordinary, Ordinary Life and the Woman Who Changed It Forever, is one of the top selling books across the US. As a recording artist, he and his wife, Joey, were the Grammy-winning country music duo Joey+Rory and have sold nearly a million records. Mr. Feek lives with their three-year-old daughter, Indiana, outside of Nashville near their family-owned diner, Marcy Jo’s Mealhouse.

"On Point is a youth development organization established in 1991 to partner with schools and communities to cultivate strengths in youth and guide them on their path to thrive. The annual Cleveland Dinner will bring together community members to celebrate and benefit the 12,000 students On Point serves annually," officials said.

Dinner tickets are sold out and due to the overwhelming response for Rory Feek tickets, general admission (non-dining, riser) seats have been made available for $35 per ticket. Seating for these tickets will begin at 6:45 p.m.  A limited number of seats and sponsorships are available at Liveonpoint.org. .
