Erin’s House for Grieving Children hosted Marcus Luttrell as the 2019 Common Bond Breakfast featured speaker on Thursday, June 6 at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.

“As the final donations are coming in, we are pleased to share that we have raised over $130,000 towards the mission,” stated Debbie Meyer, Executive Director of Erin’s House for Grieving Children. “We can’t thank Marcus enough for sharing his journey with us.”

One guest described the morning simply as “incredibly moving.” Another guest noted, “Marcus provided great insight and inspiration.”
