Child star Tracey Gold speaks to hundreds of Siouxland women

SOUTH SIOUX CITY, NE (KTIV) - The United Way of Siouxland held the 14th annual Women's Power Luncheon Wednesday with a familiar face from the 1980's.

Tracey Gold, who played Carol Seaver on the hit TV show "Growing Pains" spoke to a big group at the Marina Center in South Sioux City, Nebraska.

Gold shared story of how she overcame life's obstacles, including an eating disorder.

"I speak at colleges, I speak at organizations like this, I speak at eating disorder clinics, and I just like getting out there. I like telling my story and I like touching people and I think that it's the things that you guys are doing here are really important. I am really honored to be a part of it," said Tracey Gold, Actress.

The Women's Power Lunch began in 2001 with an aim to encourage, inspire, and advance the women in the community.

Money raised at this event go to scholarships for Siouxland colleges and universities.

'"There are a lot of individuals in our community who want to further their education and that's why we are here.  We want to make sure and provide that opportunity for someone who maybe didn't get a chance to go to school right out of high school to attend a college to further their education and really inspire their children to do the same thing in the future," said Heather Hennings, President of United Way of Siouxland.

Nearly 900 people attended this year's luncheon including KTIV's own Matt Breen and Sheila Brummer.
