An Evening with Elizabeth Smart August 31, 2019

Please join us on August 31 at the Owensboro Convention center as we welcome 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 a prisoner for 9 grueling months.

Through this traumatic experience, Elizabeth has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs, and National legislation. Elizabeth triumphantly testified before her captor and the world about the very private nightmare she suffered during her abduction, which led to conviction.

Elizabeth’s abduction and recovery continue to motivate parents, law enforcement and leaders worldwide to focus on children’s safety. She emphasizes vigilance by “everyday” people and the belief that hope always exists to find every missing child.

Thank you to our Gold Sponsor Owensboro Health and our Silver sponsor Fraternal Order of Eagles for making this event possible. If you would like to sponsor please contact us at 270-926-7278. Opportunities are available for a private meet and greet with Elizabeth prior to dinner.
