Former President George W. Bush will headline an event in October for a Des Moines area non-profit. Trailhead International Builders, a nonprofit organization that raises initial funding for church and community center facilities in developing nations, announced that Bush will speak at their dinner on October 14th at the Iowa Events Center.
“We are tremendously honored that President Bush has chosen to help us with our mission to improve the lives of people around the world who struggle in grinding poverty and seek to lift up their lives and, especially, the lives of their children,” Daniel and Rachael Pettit, presidents of the Trailhead International Builders, said. “His compassion for people in need is an inspiration to millions of people. We could not imagine a more appropriate leader to highlight our mission and work.”
