I attended CornerHouse breakfast as a part of their 4th annual fundraiser in support of abused children and their families.
The event was well attended with ~300 guests of the non-profit. The event started with open networking as guests arrived followed by a sit-down breakfast as the keynote began. I’ve attached the event agenda to this post to highlight the fantastic speakers that presented. The subject of child abuse is quite a difficult topic. Several facts were quite shocking including that only 20% of abuse cases are reported and it is mainly by someone the child knows. Our speakers were very generous to share their stories of working in this field and specific cases they had involvement in. It was a tough and emotional hour for everyone. I really have to give credit to the presenters who had to struggle through some pretty personal emotions at the podium for the sake of the cause. At the conclusion of the fundraiser, I had the chance to get introduced to many people at the CornerHouse organization. What a great team that is supporting and extremely important cause.
