Outward Bound USA to Honor Patricia Francy of The Muriel F. Siebert Foundation and Feature Remarks by Canadian Adventurer Kate Harris at Its October 24 National Benefit Dinner

Outward Bound will highlight 75 years of leadership in education and women who are “breaking new trails” at this year’s event

Press Release – New York, NY, September 12, 2017 – This year’s Outward Bound National Benefit Dinner will focus on our proud history of educational leadership, along with the stories of three generations of trail breaking Outward Bound women. The event will honor Patricia Francy and the Muriel F. Siebert Foundation, whose philanthropy helps women and young girls achieve financial independence. Kate Harris, one of the world’s greatest modern-day explorers, will be the evening’s keynote speaker. Both women are Outward Bound alumnae.

The National Benefit Dinner is Outward Bound USA’s most significant annual fundraiser, raising critical funds to support Outward Bound’s educational programs. In addition to offering courses to the general public, Outward Bound operates 11 schools across the country that weave the threads of character, leadership and service into the fabric of local communities.

“I’m delighted to be counted among Outward Bound’s Trail Breakers,” said Ms. Francy. “I look forward to celebrating our shared commitment to forging new paths for girls and young women through exploration of the natural world.”

“Adventure-based learning made me the person I am today,” said Ms. Harris. “But I am not alone. Throughout this event, we will learn how Outward Bound’s approach has changed the lives of students of many different ages and circumstances.”

“This National Benefit Dinner will provide a wonderful opportunity to learn about Outward Bound’s past leadership in education and to chart the course of our future work. I invite all of our supporters to come together and help the next generation of young students break new trails,” said Peter Steinhauser, Executive Director of Outward Bound USA.
