I had tears in my eyes while reading the story of Elizabeth Smart several years ago. It was such an inspirational book about survival, hope, faith and forgiveness.This amazing personal journey was told in, "My Story" which went on to become a New York Times Best-Selling book. If you haven't read her book, I highly recommend it. Just remember the tissues as you'll be moved to tears. Tears of sadness and tears of joy. It's quite exciting to learn that she'll speak about her courageous journey at a special fundraiser this summer.

After Elizabeth Smart's abduction on June 5th, 2002 and ultimate freedom on March 12th, 2003, she's become an advocate for children and change. Smart will speak about all of this and so much more on Saturday, August 31st, 2019 from 6 PM – 9 PM at the Owensboro Convention Center. Tickets are on sale now at $69.95 and will include dinner. A Vision for Change: An Evening with Elizabeth Smart benefits New Beginnings Sexual Assault Support Services.
