2023 Live Your Dash tickets are sold out! Thank you all so much for your support! Can’t make the event? There is still time to donate!

Join us for our 9th annual Spring luncheon!

Thursday, May 4, 2023

12:00 – 1:30 pm

$75 per person – tickets available through May 1st

Full Circle’s 9th annual “Live Your Dash” luncheon is an inspirational fundraiser to raise funding for our grief support groups and educational programs.  Our goal is to ensure these groups and programs can remain free-of-charge to those who need these valuable, professional grief services. 

The theme of our luncheon is bringing attention to a seemingly insignificant mark – the dash. That dash signifies something important — your time here on Earth, the time between your birth date and your death date. During the luncheon, we share stories and honor individuals who are fully living their dash and turning life’s challenges into something meaningful.  We celebrate how “everyday people” can be moved by their mission, calling, or desire to make a difference.  We pay tribute to resiliency, hope, and passion. 

During the luncheon, we will have an inspirational speaker who has experienced challenging circumstances in their life, and despite these hardships, has moved through life with positivity and heart – supporting and/or giving back to others. 

In addition, we honor those in our community who are fully living their dash and making a difference to others. This year, we will present five “Live Your Dash” awards to community members who have been inspired to make a difference in their own unique ways. 

We hope you will join us for an event full of hope, inspiration, and celebration. 

Speaker Spotlight

You know him from behind the desk at NBC 12, and we are proud to announce that our 2023 Live Your Dash inspirational speaker is none other than Anthony Antoine NBC12. Tickets are on sale now, so grab your chance to hear Anthony’s unique perspective on how he “lives his dash” both on and off the camera.

Anthony came to Richmond’s NBC 12 after spending 6 years at the CBS affiliate in Champaign, Illinois, where he earned a 2016 Emmy nomination. Anthony was born in Trinidad and Tobago, migrating to the U.S. at the age of 10 with his family to settle in New Jersey.

Anthony furthered his education at Bowling Green State University in Ohio, where he studied Telecommunications and a minor in Ethnic Studies, graduating in 2009. While in college, he interned at CBS in Los Angeles, California working on shows like Entertainment Tonight, Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Anthony, his wife, and their two dogs are happy to call Richmond home and they enjoy experiencing everything the city has to offer.
