2019 Foundation Dinner and Auction featuring Michael Phelps

May 31, 2019 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The date for our benefit has been changed to Friday, May 31.  We are thrilled to have Michael Phelps join us here in Lincoln for our event!


Join us for the 2019 Joshua Collingsworth Memorial Foundation Dinner and Auction featuring Michael Phelps!


Michael Phelps is the most decorated Olympian in history, capturing a total of 28 medals including a record-setting 23 gold medals over the course of five Olympic Games. Phelps utilized his performance bonus for winning eight gold medals at 2008 Beijing Games to establish the Michael Phelps Foundation. Committed to promoting water safety, healthy living and the pursuit of dreams, the Foundation delivers its signature program – im – to an underserved population and primarily for people within Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Special Olympics International.

The most decorated swimmer in World Championships history, Phelps launched his own competitive swimwear brand – MP – in partnership with Aqua Sphere in 2014. He has published two autobiographies – No Limits: The Will to Success and Beneath the Surface – that were New York Times and USA Today best sellers, as well as published one children’s book – How to Train with a T-Rex and Win Eight Gold Medals. He is a highly regarded inspirational speaker, sharing his message of “Dream, Plan, Reach” with audiences ranging from children to business executives.

Michael Phelps Foundation partnered with the Joshua Collingsworth Memorial Foundation in 2017 to expand their efforts in children’s water safety. We are honored to have Michael as our keynote speaker for our 11th Annual JCMF dinner and auction.
