Davis House’s annual Button Ball event will take place on Saturday, March 2 at The Factory in Franklin starting at 6 p with special guest Elizabeth Smart.
The abduction of Elizabeth Smart was one of the most followed child abduction cases of our time. Smart was abducted on June 5, 2002, and her captors controlled her by threatening to kill her and her family if she tried to escape. Fortunately, the police safely returned Elizabeth to her family on March 12, 2003, after being held captive for 9 months.
Through this traumatic experience, Elizabeth has become an advocate for change. Elizabeth has recently released a new powerful and inspiring book about what it takes to overcome trauma, find the strength to move on, and reclaim one’s life. Come hear this amazing story of hope, shared by Elizabeth Smart at the Davis House Button Ball 2019.
For those who are interested in meeting Elizabeth Smart, Davis House is offering a “Hope Patron” event just ahead of the ball where patrons can meet Smart, receive an autographed copy of her book “My Story” and enjoy musical entertainment by harpist Dr. Sarah Crocker. There are only 50 tickets available for “Hope Patron” event.
The Button Ball will begin at 6 p with a cocktail hour followed by dinner and program at 7 p. Purchase your tickets online here.
