LOGAN – Kidnapping survivor and advocate against child abuse Elizabeth Smart will be the keynote speaker at the annual fundraising dinner for the United Way of Cache Valley Friday May 13th at 7 p.m in the Riverwoods Conference Center.

The theme of this year’s event will be “Turning Pages, Changing Lives.” United Way executive director Douglas Stevenson said it will be an exciting event local residents won’t want to miss. Smart will take questions from the audience and sign copies of her memoir “My Story,” a moving account of her kidnapping ordeal by street preacher Brian David Mitchell and his wife.

Stevenson said many are already making reservations. All you have to do to reserve a spot is go to <a href=”http://unitedwayofcachevalley.org” target=”_blank”>unitedwayofcachevalley.org</a>.

“It’s right on our front page, a place where they can either buy tickets or buy a sponsorship or buy a table for their business,” he said. “They can do any of those things right on the front page of our website.”

Stevenson said United Way works with partner agencies to provide an umbrella of services to help friends, families, neighbors and organizations in need.
