The Anna’s Angels Gala to support Down syndrome research is back for its fifth — and possibly most exciting — year. Organizers have secured noteworthy life coach Martha Beck, PhD, a best-selling new York Times author, regular guest on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and “Good Morning America,” and columnist for O, The Oprah Magazine, as a special guest speaker at the April 19 event to be held at Prestonwood Country Club.
“Martha Beck is not only a well-known life coach and author, but she is also the mother of a son with Down syndrome,” said Michelle Pfeiffer, founder of Anna’s Angels. “her book, ‘expecting Adam: A True story of Birth, Rebirth and everyday Magic,’ chronicles her experience with her son, so we share a common bond to bring more understanding and support to children like our own. I am thrilled she chose to support Anna’s Angels.”
