Be The Arrow

From 30 years in the press box, or on stage as an actor, Mark Oristano has an earned reputation as a funny, informative speaker. And now, with 20 years of volunteering under his belt, Mark has developed BE THE ARROW, a humorous and, in the end, deeply touching presentation about what it means to give your time and talent to others.

Touching on his experiences at Children’s Medical Center in Dallas, where he is a 20-year volunteer in the Day Surgery Recovery Room, and his summer work at Paul Newman’s Hole In The Wall Gang Camp in Connecticut, Mark spins stories that will have your group laughing and crying and, after all is said and done, ready to sign up and exercise the volunteer spirit.

For a brief view of Mark’s  presentation, click the link to his demo video.

The entire presentation can be viewed here.
