Elizabeth Smart will be the featured speaker Friday at a fundraiser for people leaving polygamous families and communities.
The benefit is 6:30 p.m. Friday at La Caille restaurant, 9565 S. Wasatch Blvd. in Sandy. Tickets are $125 per person. There also will be a silent auction to benefit the charity Holding Out Help.
Smart was abducted from her Salt Lake City home in 2002 at age 14. She was held captive for nine months before police found her in Sandy. She is now a motivational speaker and works to raise awareness about crimes against children.
