Doors open at 11 a.m. with the raffle winner announcement and program beginning at noon. This year’s speaker is Sherrard, IL native, Karli Johnson.

She travels the country educating children, teens and adults on the importance of violence awareness and prevention. As a survivor of sexual assault, dating violence, and other forms of trauma, Karli has lived experiences resonate with children, teens and adults throughout the country.
