Michigan Lion Forum 2017

Keynote Speaker - John Drake


John Drake and his wife, Judy, founders of the Lingap Center, an orphanage in Toledo City, Cebu, Philippines.


As the Keynote Speaker, John will share the story of how a dilapidated building that housed 26 abused, abandoned or orphaned children was the motivation to try and make a difference in the lives of children who seemed to have no hope. Considered a catalyst for change, then Philippine President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo named John an ‘Outstanding Toledano’, and adopted son of Toledo City.


John’s purpose in life is to help the abandoned, abused and neglected children of the Philippines. Listen to his inspirational story Saturday,
February 18, and hear how we all can make a difference in the lives
of others.
