Presented by B’nai B’rith Omaha, this annual event honors local male and female scholar-athletes, with the proceeds going to Omaha-area high school athletics, Make-A-Wish, the Omaha Symphony and other institutions.

This year’s banquet is on Thursday, May 15, and the featured speaker is Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, who famously used the word “Omaha” as part of his pre-snap count during the 2014 NFL playoffs.
