Rob Lowe Announced as Keynote Speaker for 2016 Champions of Health Gala

Jun. 24, 2016

Oklahoma City, OK – American actor and author, Rob Lowe, will serve as the keynote speaker for the 2016 Champions of Health gala, to be held on Tuesday, Sept. 27 at 6 p.m. at the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

In an industry known for rejection and superficiality, Lowe has successfully managed to stay relevant and versatile, overcoming setbacks and finding his way through to the joy and peace of successful marriage and fatherhood. A passionate advocate for issues ranging from cancer awareness to the environment, Lowe is also an example of using one's platform to make a positive impact in the world.

"I look forward to attending the gala and honoring these great individuals, organizations and groups who are working together to create a healthier Oklahoma," said Lowe.

The 13th annual event will honor Champions of Health winners for making a difference and improving the health of Oklahomans. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Oklahoma Caring Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to providing children access to preventive health services and immunizations at no cost through the Oklahoma Caring Vans.
