COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Hope Harbor’s 10th annual Celebration of Hope Luncheon takes place Thursday, Sept. 20 at the Columbus Convention and Trade Center.
This year’s keynote speaker is Robin Givens. Givens will share her story of surviving an abusive marriage with guests in hopes of encouraging and empowering them.
"Each year, we try to get a speaker that is a survivor of domestic violence or has experience with that, so they can share their story as an inspiration to those in the audience who may not have taken that hard step yet of leaving. So yes, she has a history of it. She was married to Mike Tyson and it was a domestic violence relationship. It’s something she'll share a little bit about," said Lindsey Reis, Hope Harbour’s executive director.
The luncheon is the largest fundraising event for Hope Harbour. All the money raised will go directly to the victims of domestic violence and the children it serves.
