Child Rescue Coalition Honors a Beacon of Hope and Resilience in the Fight Against Child Exploitation on Saturday, April 13th

BOCA RATON, Fla. (January 25, 2024) – Child Rescue Coalition (CRC), a nonprofit that developed world-renowned technology to help law enforcement worldwide rescue children from sexual exploitation and prevent abuse, announced its seventh annual “Tech with Heart” gala presented by TransUnion, celebrating 11 years of protecting children from sexual abuse and exploitation. The gala is set to take place on Saturday, April 13th, 2024, starting at 6:00 PM, at the exquisite Opal Grand Oceanfront Resort & Spa in Delray Beach, Florida. The highlight of the evening will be the keynote address by the indomitable Beth Holloway.

The inspirational evening will feature an elegant dinner, cocktails, live and silent auctions and an afterparty. Proceeds from the evening will enhance Child Rescue Coalition’s technological developments, increase law enforcement training and rescue thousands of children from sexual exploitation and abuse.

Mike Donlan, CEO of Child Rescue Coalition, expressed his deep appreciation for having Beth Holloway as the keynote speaker, stating, “It is a tremendous honor to welcome Beth Holloway to our gala event. Her unwavering dedication and her own remarkable journey make her a natural fit for our mission. Her story of courage and resilience perfectly aligns with our commitment to protecting children and providing hope to survivors.”

Beth Holloway’s journey is a testament to courage, dedication, faith, and strength. She embodies the spirit of resilience in the face of adversity. Her life initially revolved around a quiet and fulfilling career as a speech pathologist for children with special needs, spanning an impressive 24 years. However, in the summer of 2005, Mrs. Holloway’s life took a seismic turn when her daughter Natalee disappeared on the last night of her senior high graduation trip to Aruba. This heart-wrenching story became a global news sensation, captivating audiences worldwide as Beth tirelessly pursued answers.

She has since dedicated herself to delivering messages of hope, faith, and personal safety to young adults and people of all ages across the United States. Mrs. Holloway has shared her profound insights with tens of thousands of students, parents, law enforcement officials, and various organizations in high schools, colleges, churches, conventions, and beyond. As a New York Times Best Selling author, her book “Loving Natalee” (also adapted into a Lifetime Movie) has further extended her reach.

“Whatever we can do, wherever we are, it is essential that we protect our children. It is our job; we are their protectors,” said Beth Holloway.

Beth Holloway’s story serves as a beacon of hope and resilience, inspiring us all to apply her philosophies of courage, dedication, faith, and strength to our own lives. Her presence as the keynote speaker at the CRC gala promises to uplift and empower all in attendance.

For over a decade, CRC has been at the forefront of developing innovative technology to combat child predators and protect children from sexual exploitation and abuse. This event represents a significant milestone in their relentless mission to safeguard innocence through the power of technology.
