With our Gala to celebrate Enchanted Hills Camp swiftly approaching, we are delighted to announce the keynote speaker for An Enchanted Evening (drumroll, please…) This year’s guest speaker will be renowned author and advocate for the Deafblind community, Rebecca Alexander!
Rebecca Alexander is also a psychotherapist, group fitness instructor, extreme athlete, and disability rights advocate whose mission is to inspire others to live deeply meaningful lives. Born with a rare genetic disorder called Usher syndrome (type 3A), she has been simultaneously losing both her sight and hearing since she was an adolescent. She is almost completely blind and deaf, and approaches life’s challenges with infectious curiosity and enthusiasm.
On August 19, Bay Area native, Rebecca, will return home to headline our gala at the Westin St. Francis Hotel in San Francisco’s iconic and historic Union Square Plaza. The gala’s goal to raise funds for rebuilding and re-imagining our beloved Enchanted Hills Camp is a goal that reignites deeply with Rebecca.
“I have such fond memories of going to camp every summer from my childhood through my teenage years in Northern California,” said Rebecca. “Summer camps are a place where anyone, regardless of ability, can experience the power of community in nature. But I’m especially delighted to support LightHouse’s efforts to create a world-class facility to serve campers who might otherwise not have access to the confidence-building activities and opportunities Enchanted Hills offers.”
