Actor Henry Winkler, known for his iconic role as the “Fonz” on television’s “Happy Days,” was the event’s keynote speaker. As a dyslexic, Winkler emphasized the importance of supporting children that learn in unconventional ways. He recounted his struggles over the course of his education and read excerpts from one of the 30 books he has authored for young children. Prior to his speech, Winkler provided signatures on special leather jackets that were sold during a donation period for funds toward SHARP.
