Marilyn 3

Luncheon with Former Miss America a Huge Success!

Former Miss America and incest survivor, Marilyn Van Derbur, wowed a packed ballroom with her heart-wrenching but inspiring story on April 30th. As part of National Child Abuse Prevention Month, CAC hosted Van Derbur, whose father sexually abused her from ages 5 to 18. Van Derbur told of her tumultuous  journey toward healing and happiness. She also gave great advice for protecting the children in our lives from abuse. Thank you to our wonderful sponsors:
