Big Sisters Luncheon
The Beach Club, Palm Beach
November 13, 2008
 

AUTHOR DEBORAH KANAFANI HEADLINES LADIES LUNCHEON BENEFITING BIG BROTHERS BIG SISTERS OF PALM BEACH COUNTY

 

 

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach County, Inc. announces their second annual Big Sisters Luncheon being held on Thursday,
 November 13, 2008 at the Beach Club in Palm Beach. 

 

This year, the program features Deborah Kanafani internationally acclaimed author of her controversial non-fiction book, “Unveiled” How
An American Woman Found Her Way Through Politics, Love
and Obedience in the Middle East.

 

Deborah Kanafani is the former wife of Yassier Arafat's senior advisor and spokesman. She has been Director of International Productions for the Palestinian Broadcasting Corporation, where she wrote and produced programs on children’s and women’s rights for the UNDP, UNICEF, and various European countries.  She will speak about her experiences in the Middle East and how she ran conflict resolution programs between Palestinians and Israelis. She was Executive Director of Women in Film and Video in Washington, DC, and a consultant for Oxygen Media. 

 

Terry Lee Kaly, CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters expressed, “Women of all cultures and faiths will find the author of Unveiled, Deborah Kanafani, a compelling speaker and mentor to women who have ever felt oppressed or victimized in a relationship. The self learning aspect of her reflections and personal growth as a woman is compelling and challenges all of us to look at the global issue of being taken seriously in whatever part of the world you may live, work and try to make a difference in.”

 

For over 34 years Big Brothers Big Sisters has been helping children reach their full potential as men and women by matching them with an adult mentor during their adolescent years.  It is through this program that volunteer mentors are trained to meet the needs and enhancing a young person’s life.

 

Luncheon tickets are $125, and include lunch at the Beach Club and an autographed copy of Unveiled.  Tables are $1,000 and other sponsorship opportunities are available. The champagne reception and registration will begin at 11:00 a.m.  The luncheon will begin at 12 o’clock noon.  For purchase information, please contact Leon Muskin at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Palm Beach County, Inc. at 561-779-8698 or
