SOUTH BEND The weather may have been white today, but everything was coming up green in downtown South Bend.

Century Center became a sea of green this afternoon for the 26th annual Great LOGAN Nose-On luncheon.

The biggest crowd so far, nearly 1,000 supporters packed in for a chance to hear spoken word poet Sarah Kay, who traveled from New York City.

She began performing at the age of 14.

Her latest book, No Matter the Wreckage, has moved up to number two on Amazon's list of poetry books, just behind Edgar Allen Poe, but beating out Shakespeare.

Kay travels the world sharing her poetry and has started an organization called Project Voice. She goes into schools and helps students learn how to write their own poetry.

"All I want to do is provide tools so that your story and your voice that you've already got is just all the more clear and all the more accessible for other people, and I think that's a lot of what LOGAN is doing as well," Kay explained. "They recognize people already have so much joy and magic and potential inside of them."

South Bend Silver Hawks owner Andrew Berlin was the 2014 honorary chair for the Nose-On, and NewsCenter 16's Maureen McFadden served her 26th year as emcee for the event.

Organizers say this year's campaign was a huge success, but LOGAN can always use more help.
