Get Ready for Empowering Women Luncheon 2014!
Our Keynote Speaker is Elizabeth Smart. The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. Elizabeth was abducted on June 5, 2002, and her captors controlled her by threatening to kill her and her family if she tried to escape. Fortunately, the police safely returned Elizabeth back to her family on March 12, 2003 after being held prisoner for 9 grueling months.
Elizabeth shares her incredible story of perseverance in the face of unimaginable adversity. Her speech not only tells her personal story, but also discusses topics such as overcoming adversity, the importance and process of recovery, and not allowing your past to dictate your life’s future.
Change for Good.
The YWCA of Rochester and Monroe County has been a powerful resource for local women and girls since 1883. The funds raised through the Empowering Women Luncheon help the YWCA provide housing and support services to over 1,000 women and children each year.
