The Center for HOPE is pleased to welcome Katherine Schwarzenegger Pratt as the speaker for its 2020 Annual Luncheon on Thursday, March 12. The event will begin at 11:30 a.m. at the Country Club of Darien.
Schwarzenegger Pratt's new book, The Gift of Forgiveness: Inspiring Stories from Those Who Have Overcome the Unforgivable, provides perspective on what it means to forgive, use forgiveness as a tool to accept and move forward, be more compassionate, release challenging emotions and be unafraid to forgive.
Alongside the first-hand accounts from Elizabeth Smart, the mother of a Columbine shooting victim and 20 others, Schwarzenegger Pratt shares her own thoughts on forgiveness and applies the lessons of others to her own journey.
Schwarzenegger Pratt's mother, Maria Shriver, served as the keynote speaker of the 2018 Center for HOPE Luncheon.

All proceeds from the 2020 Center for HOPE Luncheon will benefit the Center for HOPE and The Den for Grieving Kids, Family Centers’ programs offering counseling and support to residents of lower Fairfield County coping with a loss, a critical illness or life-altering circumstance.
