10th Annual Welcome House Breakfast

with Cris Carter

Get ready for a morning of inspiration with Cris Carter!

Heralded as one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history, Cris Carter launched his pro football career as fourth round pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1987 Supplemental Draft.

Carter made a name for himself in the end zone, amassing 130 touchdowns in his 16-season NFL career. Upon retirement  following the 2002 season, Carter held the record for the second most touchdowns in NFL history.

His impressive achievements on the gridiron include:

  • 13,899 Receiving yards
  • 1,101 Receptions
  • 16 Seasons played
  • 130 touchdowns – the 8th most in NFL history
  • 8 consecutive Pro Bowls.

Carter transitioned to broadcaster, studio analyst, and philanthropist and a powerful, worldwide speaker about his battle with addiction and his recovery. Get off the sidelines and join us for this incredible event!


The MVPs!

Table Captains are the MVPs behind the successful Annual Welcome House Breakfast. Thanks for helping us fill the Overland Park Convention Center on April 20th!

Thanks to our Table Captains!

Friends reaching out to friends. Welcome House relies on its Table Captains – people like you – who reach out to their circle of friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues to attend the Annual Welcome House Breakfast.  Table Captains serve as the host of the table, inviting up to 9 other guests to join them on April 20th.  Though the event is complimentary for all to attend, we hope both Table Captains and guests will feel inspired to share a gift of any amount with Welcome House.

Thanks to all who have signed on this year!
