Mission Services of London Hope Banquet

The Mission Services of London Hope Banquet & Silent Auction will be held virtually beginning at 5:00 pm on November 25, 2021.

The evening will begin with main stage entertainment and a virtual networking lounge where you can meet, chat, and get to know fellow attendees. Then, Keynote Speaker Liz Murray will inspire by sharing her journey of determination, hope, and hard-won success.

The child of drug-addicted parents who routinely ate from dumpsters and sought refuge at all-night subway stations to survive, Liz Murray began experiencing homelessness at age 15—and fending for her life. Determined not to be defined by her circumstances, she recognized education as the key to a fresh beginning and a whole new way of living. She earned her high school diploma in just two years and won a scholarship to Harvard University. This would turn her bleak circumstances into a future filled with limitless possibility.

With sincerity, maturity and graciousness, Murray takes audiences along on her personal journey from street smarts to classroom triumphs. She instantly becomes an inspiration to both student groups and business audiences in need of the motivation to overcome their own obstacles. The subject of Lifetime Television’s Emmy-nominated original film, Homeless to Harvard, Murray graduated from Harvard, and went on to receive her Masters in the Psychology of Education at Columbia University. Today, as co-founder and Executive Director of The Arthur Project, Murray is a passionate advocate for underserved youth, working to end generational poverty through relationship-based learning.

Funds raised provide clothing, hygiene items, and household articles at no cost to adults and children in need through the Mission Store’s Emergency Voucher Program and Warm Hands—Warm Hearts Outreach Program.

Tickets on sale July 8, 2021 through November 21, 2021 (tickets that include meal options have an earlier cut-off of November 10, 2021).
