The Grand Ballroom at the Hilton Bellevue
Saturday November 9th, 2019


This powerful evening of honor is hosted by Legacy’s President and Relationship Insights radio host Carrie Abbott. The evening includes a stirring presentation with leaders and founders from many local organizations, standing united celebrating God’s design for family and includes a ceremony awarding Legacy’s Lifetime Achievement Award to Dr. James Dobson. Dr. Dobson graciously agreed to receive this award and will not be present, but his response to the award will be done by video during the ceremony.

Some of our team traveled to meet with Dr. Dobson recently in preparation for this night and we are humbled and grateful for this rare opportunity to share the powerful impact this champion for the family has had in our own region and worldwide! This statesman of the church is quite literally a national treasure and we believe honoring him unites us all in embracing God’s design for family, needed now more than ever. Dr. Dobson is surprised and humbled by our desire to present this award to him, intentionally including other leaders from the area, as well as personal messages of honor from hundreds of people whose lives have been impacted by his legacy. This is where you come in!

A film crew will be on site filming a special video for Dr. Dobson so prepare your thoughts, you will have 1 minute to tape your personal thank you throughout the evening. Our goal is to create the largest thank you card by video Dr. Dobson will ever receive so make your plans now to attend this historic event!
