Each year the Rooney Golf Foundation sponsors the Overcomer Luncheon featuring guest speakers and a raffle. This year the Overcomer Luncheon was held on November 15th at the National Croquet Center. Potentia Academy is one of two organizations that benefit from the proceeds. This year the guest speaker was Kerry Magro, Best-Selling Author, Autism Entertainment Consultant, Autism Advocate & Anti-Bullying Activist. Magro was completely non-verbal until the age of two and a half and was diagnosed with autism at 4-years-old. He is now a best-selling author of 2 books (Defining Autism From The Heart, Autism and Falling in Love), movie consultant of 2 autism films (Joyful Noise, Jane Wants A Boyfriend) and a non-profit founder that has given over 50 scholarships for students with autism to attend college.
