Opus for Person-to-Person will host Deborah Goodrich Royce as the special guest speaker at their upcoming annual spring luncheon.

Goodrich Royce will be speaking to luncheon guests about her best-selling book as well as her storied career as an actress and philanthropist. The luncheon will be held at the Woodway Country Club in Darien on Thursday, March 5 in support of Darien-based nonprofit Person-to-Person (P2P).

All attendees will receive a copy of Goodrich Royce’s debut novel Finding Mrs. Ford. Spring luncheon tickets are $110 and selling fast. Visit www.opus4p2p.org to purchase and for more information.

“We are excited for the opportunity to hear Deborah speak in such an intimate setting at the OPUS Spring Luncheon this year. Finding Mrs. Ford is a thrilling story, and the discussion will be just as engaging! It will be a fun day for an incredible cause,” said OPUS Co-President, Kerry Pearson.

Proceeds from the Spring Luncheon will be used to support the P2P programs that directly benefit children, including campership scholarships for children in need, the holiday toy store, Baby basics layettes for new mothers and scholarships for college.

In 2019, P2P served more than 24,000 people from the seven towns of Darien, Stamford, Norwalk, New Canaan, Westport, Weston and Wilton.
