Oakdale-Lake Elmo Prayer Breakfast

The Oakdale-Lake Elmo Area will hold its eighth annual prayer breakfast and Veterans Day celebration on Thursday, Nov. 5 at the Prom Center, 484 Inwood Ave. in Oakdale at 7 a.m. Doors open at 6:45 a.m. The speaker will be Mark Whitacre who is considered the highest-ranked executive of any Fortune 500 company to become a whistleblower in U.S. history, and was responsible for uncovering the ADM price-fixing scandal in the early 1990s. His undercover work with the FBI during the ADM scandal was the inspiration for the 2009 major motion picture, "The Informant," starring Matt Damon as Mark Whitacre, and the 2010 Discovery Channel Documentary "Undercover." His story is an inspirational story of faith, hope, redemption and second chances. Tickets cost $25 and must be purchased by Oct. 31. To purchase tickets and for more information email to oleaprayerbreakfast@gmail.com.
