(Orlando, FL) Don Wildmon, the founder of the American Family Association (AFA) based in Tupelo, Mississippi will be one of the special guests in attendance at the Fifth Annual Policy Awards Dinner of the Florida Family Policy Council (FFPC) to be held on Saturday, May 15, 2010 in Orlando at the Rosen Centre Hotel.
Dr. Wildmon will be honored as a recipient of the FFPC’s Lifetime Achievement Award, the Daniel Webster Award for Principled Service to Public Policy. The award, which is named after former State Senator Daniel Webster, has also been given to Jeb Bush, Ken Connor and Dr. Reed Bell.
Wildmon is a quiet and humble man but is a giant in the pro-family movement and one of its founders since the late 1970’s. Over the years Dr. Wildmon and his organization have brought a number of major corporations to their knees and persuaded them to stop advertising for pornography, gay rights, and other forces destructive to the family through organizing unprecedented boycotts, letter writing and e-mail campaigns.
Dr. Wildmon is also the co-founder of the Arlington Group, a national coalition of pro-family leaders that has meet in Washington DC for the past several years. Wildmon will be attending the dinner with Lynda, his wife of 48 years.
The keynote speakers this year for the annual awards dinner evening will be Fox News Analyst Fred Barnes and former House Speaker Marco Rubio. A major news announcement will also be made immediately after the dinner. Details and tickets are now available online at http://www.flfamily.org/events_details.php?id=127 .
