The 8th Annual Life Lessons Luncheon to benefit The Elisa Project will take place on Tuesday, January 22, 2013, at 11:30 am, at The Omni Hotel Dallas. This much-anticipated event helps to raise awareness about the problem of eating disorders and provides funds to support the programs and services provided by The Elisa Project, which has touch the lives of more than 40,000 people in 2012.

This year’s event features writer, activist and philanthropist Katherine Schwarzenegger.
