In Search of Gosselin's Speaking Engagements

This blog is in search of any info about Jon and Kate Gosselin's speaking engagements. If you are aware of any events that we have not found, please let us know. Many of the places holding the events have websites and calendars, but Jon and Kate are not listed on all of these sites. The Gosselins used to list their speaking engagements on their site... They no longer have them listed.

Jon and Kate Plus 8 Registration

We are excited to be hosting the cast of "Jon and Kate Plus 8" on Sunday, September 14 at 10:00 am. Completing the requested information below will pre-register you for this event. We are asking only those within a 15 mile radius of the church to pre-register and attend, as there is limited seating available. Thank you for understanding. This event is free, but please come prepared to give in a love offering toward the Gosselin’s. Due to the increased response for this event, we have rented Keswick Theatre, a local production theatre around the corner from the church in Glenside, Pa. This will provide much more seating. Children will be included in the service, sitting with their parents. Don’t worry, the service will be a fast paced, multi-media experience that will keep your kids’ attention.
We look forward to meeting you soon!

We just found this, it is about an old speaking engagement:
Jon & Kate Event at Mt. Zion Lutheran School Has Been CancelledOn April 18, 2008 the Jon & Kate Event planning committee at Mt. Zion Lutheran School was informed that, due to a change in their TV production schedule, Jon and Kate Gosselin have to cancel their trip to Colorado on May 17, 2008. We have been informed that both events scheduled in Colorado for that weekend are canceled. The event planning committee, parents, members, staff, and friends of Mt. Zion Lutheran Church and School are profoundly disappointed that this event will not occur. Much planning, time, energy, expense and excitement have already been expended in order to present this event to our community. We sincerely regret any inconvenience that this cancellation may have caused.
Ticket Refunds
Because hundreds of tickets have already been sold, now the planning committee’s primary focus is to inform and refund those who have purchased tickets. If you have purchased tickets, please know that you will receive a full refund including the $1.50 per ticket handling fee (to cover the online PayPal fees and postage), if applicable, you have been charged. It is the planning committee’s goal to have all refunds processed and returned by May 1, 2008. If you purchased your tickets through the Mt. Zion website, via PayPal, you will receive a refund on your credit card through the PayPal system. If you purchased your tickets in person, either at Mt. Zion Lutheran School, MOPs groups, etc. your check, which has not been cashed yet, will be returned to you by postal mail. If you have not received your refund by May 8, 2008, please contact us at or 720-514-2249.

I heard they cancelled several events because they are now charging for appearing. They used to collect love offerings, now they charge. I don't know if they still ask people to give too.

Does anyone know if J&K have ever spoke at Kate's dad's church? I was thinkning that may be a good way to give back to all that helped them in the early days. On second thought, I guess that would not be really giving back.

I don't understand how they get so many people going to listen to them tell how rough they had it. I guess you can ask questions at these things, I wonder if anyone ever asks things like, where are your friends and family, how much do you make a year, or such things.

Does that Southern Women's Show even know who they are promoting? They said...Jon & Kate Gosselin have been blessed with twins and sextuplets in the past three years.

No, they have not had that many kids in the last 3 years, the tups turned 4 this spring.

I can't wait to see if they do a book tour, now that would be something. I bet Kate may get a few books thrown at her. It must be terrible to have to live like that, when you know that everyone knows what you really are and they don't like you.

Well, I just received an e-mail back from a letter I sent to the Maui resort they renewed their vows at. It was pretty much a form letter but I was offered the woman's cell phone number and an offer to contact her with any other questions that I may have.
She also stated that the hotel did not pay for everything. She wrote they did not pay for airfare, activities around the island and the wedding. Only with accommodations and the plans. Sorry, but even the accommodations are a huge expense that most average families could afford. Of course, the kids paid for it by working.

Beachluvin, thank you for sharing. Would you like this hotel added to our list of sponsors? If so, would you please leave the hotel's full name for us.

Beachluvin, can you post the email in full? If so, I would really like to see it, perhaps you could email it to the admin here.

I want to thank you for putting up the list of Jon and Kate Plus 8 sponsors. Believe it or not, this is not something that is easy to find.

I heard the cancelled a bunch of their talking events to. I guess they weren't going to get paid enough.

I would like to think that the Gosselins did not do the cancelling. I would like to think the "hosts" found out about the Gosselins and their money, and their greed, and they were the ones who cancelled. I would like to think that. But I suppose it is not so.
