From The Elisa Project team:

ESTEEM is one of The Elisa Project’s most exciting events of the year! We are honored to have so many local celebrities like our co-chair Kelly Rasberry and too many others to mention, and community philanthropists like Yvonne Crum and Rhonda Sargent Chambers willing to come together and “shine the light” on the serious and harmful impact of eating disorders by raising funds to help those who are suffering. We are truly grateful all their hard work, and generosity, in putting together an event not to miss!
