Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre’s fundraiser to feature author and sex-abuse survivor

Dec. 3 event is at Holiday Inn in Gasoline Alley.

The Central Alberta Child Advocacy Centre is holding a fundraising luncheon featuring author and behavioural scientist Peter Gregg.

Gregg will relate a survivor’s story of childhood sexual abuse, including his perseverance in overcoming adversity and how he turned his life around, on Tuesday, Dec. 3, at the Holiday Inn in Gasoline Alley.

Gregg, a leadership consultant to entrepreneurs throughout North America, has written a new book that presents “tools for healing” for abuse survivors.

Along with the $55 ticket to the Courage Luncheon, each guest will receive a copy of Gregg’s book, Lost Boy Found.

Gregg, who left university teaching two decades ago to start Success Lab, a think-tank for company presidents and their teams, will donate all proceeds from additional book sales to the child advocacy centre.

Doors for the luncheon open at 11 a.m., and the program starts at 11:45 a.m.

Tickets are available from Eventbrite.
