Campaign Kick-Off

Food Lines Open: 11:15 am

Program: 11:30 am - 1pm

Location: McNease Convention Center

We are excited to announce that Liz Murray will be our guest speaker for our 2021 United Way Campaign Kick-Off Luncheon!

From homeless to Harvard... it is an unlikely turn of events. Liz Murray's life is a triumph over adversity and a stunning example of the importance of dreaming big! Her story sounds like a Hollywood movie - and it practically is. Lifetime Television produced a movie about Murray's life story entitled Homeless to Harvard, which was nominated for three "Emmy Awards". Her memoir, Breaking Night, is a New York Times bestseller and an international bestseller published in twelve countries, in eight languages. 

Today, Murray is a passionate advocate for under-served youth, serving as Co-Founder and Executive Director for The Arthur Project. She is passionate about speaking on the importance of personal motivation, transforming problems into opportunities, and what it takes to make a difference in people's lives.
