The Women Helping Women Fund Tri-Cities (WHWF-TC) is pleased to announce that Elizabeth Smart will be the guest speaker at their annual luncheon on Monday, October 22, 2012 at the TRAC Center in Pasco.

Kidnapped and brutalized at age 14 by a man who claimed God had commanded him to do so, Elizabeth Smart could have easily become nothing more than an object of pity—another tragic story of child abduction. But Elizabeth Smart would not allow her past to dictate her future. Through this traumatic experience, Elizabeth has become an advocate for change related to child abduction, recovery programs and National Legislation. Founder of the Elizabeth Smart Foundation, Elizabeth has dedicated her life to preventing crimes against children and providing motivation and encouragement to children who have suffered through similar experiences. She has helped promote the National Amber Alert, The Adam Walsh Child Protection & Safety Act and other safety legislation to help prevent abductions. Two years ago, Elizabeth collaborated with the Department of Justice and four other recovered young adults in creating a survivors guide, entitled, “You’re Not Alone: The Journey From Abduction to Empowerment.” ABC News Correspondent Elizabeth Smart shares an inspirational story not only of the tragedy that befell her, but of survival, courage, and the wonder of overcoming extreme adversity.

Founded in 2000, the Women Helping Women Fund Tri-Cities strives to empower women and children to create healthy families and a vibrant community.  WHWF-TC raised over $110,000 for programs benefitting women and children in the local community at the 2011 annual luncheon.  For more information on WHWF-TC, the 2012 luncheon, or table captain or sponsorship opportunities, please call (509)736-1946, e-mail, or visit
