Event at Childhelp River Bridge Center in Colorado
Posted 04/27/2009 by Derrek Hofrichter
From the Aspen Times:
It took a very public revelation for former Miss America Marilyn Van Derbur of Denver to come to terms with, and open up about something she had kept bottled up as a private secret all her life.
"And in a way that I never expected," said Van Derbur, who will give a free presentation Monday in Carbondale to bring awareness to the issue in recognition of Child Abuse Prevention Month.
Van Derbur, the 1958 Miss America from Colorado, will speak about her experience as an incest survivor with her talk, "Miss America By Day," at 7 p.m. Monday at the Thunder River Theatre in Carbondale. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m., and a reception will follow the presentation.
The event is hosted by the Childhelp River Bridge Center, a child advocacy center in Glenwood Springs that serves victims of child sexual abuse in the Roaring Fork Valley. Tickets are free but must be reserved prior to the event as seating capacity is limited to 200. Donations will be accepted at the door."
