ECVC Annual Banquet | Celebrating 52 years

October 12, 2017

6:30 pm at rock springs center

Each year, we strive to increase awareness of the abilities of persons with disabilities and their contribution to the workforce at our annual banquet. The focus of the event is to promote the continued inclusion for people with disabilities within our community and to empower them to reach their full potential. Our event is not a fundraiser - the funds from sales of seats, tables, and sponsorships only cover the expenses of this grand event to help raise awareness and share our mission. This year we proudly celebrate our 52nd Anniversary.

We hope you will join our celebration this year by attending and/or being a sponsor! For more information or to purchase your tickets online, please visit our Event Page HERE. To purchase your tickets offline or inquire about sponsorship opportunities, please contact Candy Avery at CAvery@ecvcinc.com or by phone at 252-317-3144.


Ronan Tynan - 2017 Guest Speaker

Ronan-Portrait-7-lg.jpg

Dr. Ronan Tynan is truly a modern day “Renaissance Man.” Faced with numerous challenges throughout his well-documented life, he has persevered with enormous passion and determination. He attributes his success to his faith and the knowledge that the Man Above guides him through every door he opens. Introduced to international audiences as a member of the Irish Tenors, Tynan quickly became known for his unique voice and irresistible appeal.

Following his mother’s advice to always follow your dreams, Tynan decided to launch a solo career, and has achieved the fame and adoration that could have existed only in the farthest reaches of his dreams. Though Ronan enjoyed singing as a boy, he did not seriously consider formal voice study until he was 33, when he was well into his residency as a physician. His quick success is a typical development in a life of extraordinary achievement.

Born with lower limb disability that threatened to sideline him throughout his childhood, Tynan was still “as wild as a March hare” when he was a growing boy, riding horses and racing motorcycles. When he was twenty, his legs had to be amputated below the knee after an auto accident caused serious complications. Just weeks after the operation, he was climbing up the steps of his college dorm, and within a year, he was winning gold medals in the Paralympics as a multitalented athlete. Between 1981 and 1984, Tynan amassed eighteen gold medals and fourteen world records of which he still holds nine.

Ronan is one of the most sought after motivational speakers in the U.S., presenting speeches annually for major international corporations and organizations. Ronan also continues to travel all over the world to perform concerts.

We can't wait to hear his story at the 2017 ECVC Banquet!
