Person to Person, a nonprofit organization dedicated to assisting individuals and families in lower Fairfield County, is pleased to announce its upcoming Transforming Lives Luncheon, scheduled for October 20, 2023, at the Hyatt Regency Greenwich featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning author Andrea Elliott.
The funds raised through this luncheon will contribute to P2P’s mission of providing vital resources to those in need, helping them overcome daily challenges and putting them on a path toward economic stability.
Elliott is a journalist and author who has documented the lives of poor Americans, Muslim immigrants and other people on the margins of power. She is an investigative reporter for The New York Times, a professor of creative nonfiction at Princeton University, and the author of the 2022 Pulitzer Prize winning book Invisible Child .
“Far too many families are struggling in America, and our future hangs in the balance,” said Elliott. “In the absence of a robust safety net, the work of protecting children from the hardships of poverty has increasingly fallen to nonprofits like Person to Person. I’m honored to take part in this event.”
Elliott has received several notable awards during her career, including the 2007 Pulitzer Prize, a George Polk award and an Overseas Press Club award, among many others. She is the first woman in history to win individual Pulitzer Prizes in both Journalism and Arts & Letters.
Barack Obama named Invisible Child one of his favorite books of the year.
The Transforming Lives Luncheon will include a special pre-luncheon “Meet and Greet” session with Elliott, where a limited number of guests will have the opportunity to engage in conversation with the author and receive a personalized, signed copy of Invisible Child .
The event is co-chaired by Tracey Riccardi and Tina Mazzullo. Moffly Media is the media sponsor. Tickets and sponsorship opportunities are available at p2phelps.org/tll.
