Amy Engelhardt

Saturday 6:30- 8:00 PM
Tickets Here

IMPACT shows that there are no coincidences . . . only connections. A remarkable chain of over 30 “follow-signs” lead award-winning (but jaded) comedy writer Amy Engelhardt to Scotland. What begins as a bucket-list trip evolves into a personal and global exploration of grace, kindness and simplicity. With some Satanic nuns thrown in, for good measure.
