-- The Women's Board of Wolfson Children's Hospital announces a new Florida Forum Speaker Series date for award-winning singer/songwriter/
actor Tim McGraw. The new date is Feb. 16, 2022.
McGraw was originally scheduled to speak at the Florida Forum in September, but rescheduled to begin production of "1883," the highly anticipated prequel to "Yellowstone."
The new series follows the Dutton family as they embark on a journey west through the Great Plains toward the last bastion of untamed America. McGraw, and his wife, Faith Hill, will play James and Margaret Dutton, the patriarch and matriarch of the family. The Paramount Plus series, which also stars Sam Elliott, doesn't have a release date yet.
The Florida Forum Speaker Series also features four-time Super Bowl champion and broadcaster Terry Bradshaw on Oct. 26, 2021, and Maj. Gen. Charles F. Bolden, Jr., a retired Marine officer, astronaut and former NASA Administrator, on Nov. 17, 2021. The series will take place at the Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts.
Presented by The Women's Board, the Florida Forum raises awareness and funds for Wolfson Children's Hospital of Jacksonville, supporting its mission to provide the highest quality of advanced pediatric healthcare regardless of ability to pay. The series is made possible by long-time partners and generous sponsors Wells Fargo Florida Blue and Landstar. The moderators are Jeff Lageman, Capt. Mark T. Gould, MD, USN (ret), and Jennifer Candelino. Serving as 2021 co-chairs of the Speaker Series are Jan Kirby and France Hutto.
Since 1992, the Florida Forum has been honored to host renowned speakers from around the world offering profound insights and discussions on a broad range of issues. In addition to enriching Jacksonville's intellectual and cultural life, the Florida Forum has contributed more than $9.2 million to Wolfson Children's Hospital of Jacksonville.
