Monday April 22, 2013 | By:Press Release |
SPRINGVILLE — The First United Methodist Church will host women from local churches and communities on May 17, for a night out, highlighted by a message from Jill Kelly.
The evening will begin at 5 p.m., with a reception and exhibits. A catered dinner will be held at 5:45, in the family life center, and the program will begin at 7, in the sanctuary, followed by an autograph session with Kelly.
The exhibits will feature the Hunter’s Hope Foundation. Kelly and her daughter’s books will be for sale. Hunter’s Hope Foundation, founded by Jim and Jill Kelly, after their son Hunter died from Krabbe disease, was established, to address the need for information and research. “We strive to support and encourage those afflicted, and their families, as they struggle to endure, adjust and cope with the demands of these fatal illnesses,” Jill Kelly said.
On exhibit will be wedding gowns and pictures. The oldest gown is a black wedding dress, dated 1860. The newest gown was worn on March 23, by Miranda Skura Vaccaro.
Kelly has spent the past 11 years, sharing her story with local women. She authored her book, “Without a Word: How a Boy’s Unspoken Love Changed Everything,” which chronicles her family’s and son’s story. Her latest release is titled “Etched … Upon My Heart; What We Learn and Why We Never Forget.
Tickets for this event may be purchased, before May 3. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 225-8256 or 592-7451.
