Bonnie Hathcock To Speak At On Point Inspire Ladies Luncheon Sept. 13

Monday, August 20, 2018

Bonnie C. Hathcock will be the keynote speaker for the On Point Inspire a Ladies Luncheon on Thursday, Sept. 13. The doors of First Baptist Cleveland will open at 11 a.m. with lunch beginning at 11:30 a.m. 

The Cleveland resident proves childhood challenges don’t define one's worthiness.  In her latest book, “Lilac Dreams,” she tells of more than her share of challenges in her youth.  The author has had a career in the corporate world, leading the human resources operations and marketing for companies such as Xerox Corporation, US Airways and Humana, Inc.  She was often the highest-ranking woman in the company.  She said she wrote “Lilac Dreams” to inspire women in similar circumstance to never give up on their dreams and to value their worth. 

On Point is a youth development organization established in 1991 to partner with schools and communities to cultivate the strengths in youth and guide them on their path to thrive.  Celebrating this inaugural gathering, attendees will support the more than 13,000 youth On Point serves yearly. 

Sponsorships are available at www.liveonpoint.org.  Tables of eight will sell for $400, Corporate VIP Sponsor tables of eight for $1,000 and individual luncheon tickets offered at $50 each.
