Keynote Speaker

Liz Murray

Liz Murray is a well-known author of the New York Times bestselling memoir Breaking Night, and is the recipient of the White House “Project’s Role Model Award” and Oprah Winfrey’s first ever “Chutzpah Award”. Liz Murray’s life is a triumph over adversity and a stunning example of the importance of dreaming big. Amidst the pain of growing up with drug-addicted parents and finding herself homeless as a teenager, Murray found the strength to achieve the improbable. Liz Murray’s story was turned into a Lifetime Television “Emmy Award” nominated movie entitled, Homeless to Harvard. You won’t want to miss hearing Liz’s inspiring message and the opportunity for her to personally autograph your own copy of Breaking Night at this year’s Pot of Gold Luncheon!
