According to The Elisa Project Executive Director Kimberly Martinez,
“One of my goals for 2018 is for the community to join me, alongside 13th Annual Life Lessons Luncheon Chair Kim Bannister and Honorary Co-Chairs Sandra Estess and Elizabeth Estess Hughes, for the 13th Annual Life Lessons Luncheon benefiting The Elisa Project.
“This year’s luncheon, which will be held on Wednesday, February 28, at Brook Hollow Golf Club, is not to be missed as we will welcome Golden Globe-nominated actress Chrissy Metz, star of the critically acclaimed hit NBC series ‘This is Us,’ as our featured speaker. The day will include a reception, seated luncheon and a conversation with Metz, moderated by Southern Living Editor-At-Large/author/lifestyle expert Kimberly Schlegel Whitman.
“The Elisa Project is dedicated to the development of healthy children and adolescents by raising awareness of body image and self-esteem issues and the prevention of life-threatening eating disorders. We know Chrissy will truly captivate attendees as she shares her own inspirational stories of courage and self-acceptance.
“Chrissy Metz stars on the critically acclaimed hit NBC series ‘This Is Us’ which has been renewed for two additional seasons and just received three nominations for the 2018 Golden Globe Awards, including Best Support Actress for Metz. Chrissy plays Kate, a woman struggling with her weight, eating habits, and body image. ET named her as one of six ‘breakout stars you will fall in love with this fall.’ People magazine named her to the ‘One’s to Watch.’ We could not be more thrilled to have her in Dallas!
“We expect a sold-out event, so please don’t wait! Only a limited amount of tickets will be available closer to the event. Tables begin at $2,000 and are on sale now; individual tickets will go on sale in early February if space permits. For more information, visit http://theelisaproject.org/events/life-lessons/.”
