‘Have a Heart for a Child’ Luncheon

Oceanside CA— The Friends of the Womens Resource Center invites you to attend the Have a Heart for a Child Luncheon on Thursday, February 12, 2015. The event begins 11:30 a.m. at the Shadowridge Country Club 1980 Gateway Drive, in Vista.

Featured speaker for the luncheon is Rebecca Leo, author of ‘The Flaws That Bind’. Ticket price is $40.00 per person.

Born in the Midwest, Rebecca Leo has lived on the East and West coasts, as well as in Canada, Australia, Jamaica and the island of St. Croix before returning to the U.S. where she took an administrative job at Boston University. She stayed there until her three children completed school in Cambridge and all graduated from B.U. In the meantime she earned a master’s degree and completed the coursework for her doctoral degree. She taught writing at several colleges in the Boston area until moving to Cape Cod with her husband, William. They now live in California where she is an avid tennis player and she continues writing in between doing tutoring, editing and proofreading. The novel, The Flaws That Bind, drawn from experiences encountered with the abusive father of her children, portrays how one woman manages not to become another statistic in the police records of domestic homicide.

Due to the popularity of this event, only advance paid reservations are accepted. Seating is limited. Last year’s event was sold out.

The Mission of Friends of WRC is to provide positive, enriching and memorable experiences for the children residing in the WRC transitional and shelter housing through their fundraising and advocacy activities.
