2014 Doing the Most Good Luncheon, Fort Worth - With Beth Holloway, Keynote Speaker

Beth Holloway will be the keynote speaker at The Salvation Army’s 2014 Annual Doing the Most Good Luncheon to be held on Tuesday, March 18 from noon until 1:30 p.m. at the Omni Hotel, 1300 Houston Street in Fort Worth.

By her own account Holloway lived a quiet, somewhat uneventful life as a speech pathologist for children with special needs for 24 years. Her life changed quite dramatically in the summer of 2005 when her daughter Natalee disappeared on the last night of her senior high graduation trip to Aruba. This tragic story became the leading news mystery when it happened, and continues to make headlines today.

Holloway has appeared on every television network in the nation as well as on international TV and radio and in international newspapers, capturing the world’s attention as she searched for her daughter. Barbara Walters selected her as one of the world’s most fascinating people for her perseverance in seeking answers to what happened to Natalee.

As a New York Times best-selling author of "Loving Natalee" and a veteran educator, Beth continues to educate the public on safer travel.

The purpose of the Doing the Most Good luncheon is to raise funds for programs provided by The Salvation Army in Fort Worth. These programs include free daily meals for the hungry, shelter for the homeless, a homeless-prevention program, transitional housing, substance-abuse rehab, a food pantry, after-school care, senior citizen programs, Christmas assistance, and a permanent supportive housing program for homeless veterans.

In the greater Fort Worth area, The Salvation Army operates a homeless shelter and social services center, two apartment buildings for the elderly, a substance-abuse rehabilitation center, two thrift stores, and a community center in the Northside area of the city.
Table sponsorships range from $2,500 to $100,000. Individual tickets are $150. For sponsorship or ticket information, people may contact DFWMC_Events@uss.salvationarmy.org.
