Angel Moms is hosting their 7th Annual Angel Moms Brunch and Benefit at the Royal Palm Beach Yacht and Country Club, 2425 W Maya Palm Dr., Boca Raton on December 8 at 10:30 a.m.
The keynote speaker for the Brunch will be Elizabeth Smart.
Born in Utah in 1987, Smart was abducted from her home at age 14 in June 2002. Held captive by a fanatic named Brian David Mitchell and his wife, Wanda Barzee, Smart was repeatedly raped, drugged and forced to endure religious rituals, until earning her freedom in March 2003. She has since become a noted activist and author, launching the Elizabeth Smart Foundation in 2011, authoring My Story in 2013, and being interviewed by Oprah Winfrey and Katie Couric.
Following her experience, Smart married Matthew Gilmour in 2012, and they have two children together. Her successful career as an activist allows her to share her advocacy for abduction and kidnapping victims. Smart’s appearance is generously underwritten by Arthur and Shelly Adler and Chuck and Marjorie Isroff.
At the Angel Moms Brunch and Benefit, with the theme of “Southern Charm,” the audience will be filled with women who volunteer to help improve the lives of foster children, youth who have aged out of state care, and human trafficking survivors. Place of Hope’s Angel Moms provide a network of comprehensive care for those who are in need, like Smart once was.
