“We cannot wait to see all of our friends and supporters in person for the 15thannual Chick Lit Luncheon. Our traditionally spring event will enjoy a one-time-only fall date, and what better way to celebrate than to have the inimitable Goldie Hawn as our featured speaker,” remarked Paige McDaniel, president and CEO, Community Partners of Dallas. “Not only is Goldie beloved for her countless onscreen roles, she is also a tireless advocate for children, which aligns beautifully with CPD’s ongoing work on behalf of the abused and neglected children we serve.”

She is the founder of The Goldie Hawn Foundation, a public charity with a mission to equip children with the social and emotional skills they need to lead smarter, healthier, happier and ultimately more productive lives.
Hawn authored two best-selling books, a memoir “A Lotus Grows in the Mud”, in 2005 and in 2011, “10 Mindful Minutes”, offering guidance on raising healthy, joyful and resilient children. In 2015, Hawn released “10 Mindful Minutes: A Journal”, a practical application to her last book, offering prompts and exercises to enhance the reader’s daily life through mindfulness practice.
