MMBGC hosting Inspirational Speaker Sept. 18
Local American Idol Finalist Performing
This September Madison and surrounding communities have the unique opportunity to be uplifted with inspiration while also giving inspiration to the youth that attends Madison-Morgan Boy & Girls Club.
Author, Speaker, Lawyer and Child Advocate Liz Huntley will visit Madison’s James Madison Conference Center September 18 to deliver her story during a fundraiser luncheon.
All the proceeds from the inspirational event will benefit the Club youth.
Liz Huntley is the author of “More Than A Bird,” an inspirational story, which follows her journey from a childhood marked by extreme poverty and violence to a career as a successful litigation attorney and passionate child advocate,” Nancy Vaughan, Co-President of the MMBGC Advisory board said. “Her story reflects the importance of early intervention in the lives of the young people who need us the most, which is exactly inline with the kind of work we do here at Madison-Morgan Boys & Girls Club.”
Huntley credits her local Boys & Girls Club as one of those positive influences, which helped her succeed despite the turmoil of her early life.
“We felt that offering the community a unique insight to how our Club influences children’s lives, while also hearing a story that echo’s a message of you can overcome obstacles, would lend itself to be an impactful event,” Vaughan shared.
$50 PER PERSON - INCLUDES CATERED LUNCH BY CABOOSE OF RUTLEDGE, GA
Huntley won’t be the only inspirational aspect of this event! Bria Anai Johnson, a former Boys & Girls Clubs of North Central Georgia Club member, will showcase her talents and speak to the positive impact of her Club experience.
Bria, who was an American Idol Top 10 Finalist during Season XIII, now attends Clark Atlanta University with her sights set on singing and acting.
“Your participating helps our Club provide life-enhancing programs and character building experiences to over 350 Morgan County young people we serve,” Karen Robertson, Senior Executive Director for MMBGC said. “These youth look to the Club to provide a safe place to learn and grow under the supervision of a trained and caring staff.”
Tickets for Liz Huntley include a catered lunch provided by the Caboose and are $50 per person. If you’d like to purchase tickets or see how you can partner with Madison-Morgan Boys & Girls Club for this fundraiser, please visit www.bgcncg.com/lizhuntleyspeaks.
