(KTIV) – A staple of Siouxland is returning this April.
The United Way of Siouxland will host the 19th annual Women’s Power Lunch at 11:30 a.m. April 24 at the Delta Hotels Center in South Sioux City, Nebraska.
This year’s guest speaker is Victoria Arlen. Arlen, an on-air host for ESPN who at the age of 11 was diagnosed with a rare viral disease she battled for five years.
The condition left her in a vegetative state as a child for four years, and left her without the use of her legs for almost a decadee.
A lifelong athlete, Arlen competed in the 2012 London Paralympic Games in four events, winning a gold and three silver medals.
To purchase tickets for the event, you can go to the United Way of Siouxland’s website or by calling (712) 255-3551.
