LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Children's Home of Lubbock will host "More than Magic- An Inspirational Evening with Jon Dorenbos" this Friday to raise money for their work here in the Hub City.  Dorenbos is a professional NFL player for the Philadelphia Eagles and he was a finalist on the 2016 season of America's Got Talent. 

He will share a personal, inspiring story about losing his parents and bring in the foster care system, much like some of the children with the Children's Home of Lubbock. 

The dinner night is Friday, April 7 at 6:30 p.m. at the MCM Elegante Hotel Ballroom. For information about tickets go to www.childshome.org.

Also watch Eric Robinson, Gift Officer, talk about the impact the money raised has on the children served through this organization.
