Attorneys Serving The Community is making it hard to leave the summer heat. Last year they hit it out of the park with “Hamilton” star Christopher Jackson as the keynoter and benefiting Junior Players. This summer the legal eagles are taking their 2018 ASC Luncheon in a different direction, but what a direction!
ASC Lead Chair Beth Bedell and ASC Co-Chair Jessica O’Neill have just revealed the plans including the date (Friday, June 22), the location (Hilton Anatole), the honorary chair (Jessica Thome) and the beneficiary ( Rainbow Days). Summer is just around the corner.
While that should be enough in itself, they’re having Liz Murray as the speaker. That name may be familiar for those who attended the Soup’s On! Luncheon back in 2014. When she first arrived on stage, she looked like a shy, fragile person. Within minutes she shared with the audience her life story that was so strong that checkbooks and credit cards were whipped out without hesitation.
Suggestion: Make your reservation and consider bringing along your junior high and high school kids. Then buy Liz’s books “Homeless to Harvard” and “Breaking Night: A Memoir of Forgiveness, Survival and My Journey From Homeless to Harvard.”
