Hats Off To You In Recognition of April's National Child Abuse Month
NFL Wife Theresa Bowe to Host Community Event for Former Victims


On Sunday, April 10th at the Forum Aventura from 5pm – 8pm in Miami, Florida, Theresa Bowe, an author, philanthropist, luxury realtor, and the Founder of Don’t Touch Me will host a free event in celebration of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Inviting the community to be a part of history in the making and to lock arms with others who have overcome child abuse to find healing, new relationships, and support that will help turn pain into purpose.

1 in 10 children experiences sexual abuse or assault at the hands of an adult. Most individuals who have experienced child abuse struggle with sharing their stories because of fear, trauma, or shame. As a voice against child abuse, Theresa is creating a safe space for survivors to feel empowered, release their shame, and connect with others who share similar stories. Our stories have the power to bring healing and freedom to others. 

“We can’t change the past, but we can do something special that can make an impact on the lives of many children of the future.” – Founder, Theresa Bowe

Special Guests Include: 

  • Althea Heart – Entrepreneur, Author, and Former Cast of “Love and Hip Hop Atlanta”

  • Adrianna Smith – Speaker, Coach, former Miami Heat Dancer, and NFL Cheerleader, Founder of The Huddle Conference

The Hat symbolizes the expression of freedom to release. During the ceremony, guests will take off the hats and throw them in the air to represent ridding our lives of the hurt, shame and embarrassment many victims walk through life with as survivors of child abuse.  The purpose of the event and the ceremony is once and for all release the shame and fear associated with abuse. Hats will be provided, networking and social opportunities will be available as well as complimentary food and beverages.
