Experience Matters, a Phoenix organization that connects experienced adults with nonprofits to apply their talents, will hold a luncheon on Oct. 27 featuring news correspondent and journalist Jane Pauley.

“A Conversation with Jane Pauley” will be held at the Arizona Biltmore Resort, 2400 E. Missouri Ave. Adding to her roles as an anchor on NBC Nightly News, host of the Today Show and co-host of Dateline NBC, Pauley is now a spokesperson for the generation of baby boomers who are reinventing the way they live and work. Her most recent book, “Your Life Calling,” illustrates how many adults are setting the stage for the second-half of life in fulfilling ways.

The luncheon event also will honor the hundreds of adults across Maricopa County who lend their skills, expertise and talents to nonprofits through Experience Matters and beyond.

Experience Matters also will announce the winner of its Booming with Purpose: Tell Us Your Story competition in which participants submit stories, videos and slide shows demonstrating inventive ways they’ve made an impact in Arizona as part of their second act. Five finalists will attend the luncheon and the winner will share his/her story on stage with Pauley on Oct. 27. Deadline for submitting videos is Oct. 13; visit www.experiencemattersaz.org/events.

Tickets are $150 per person to attend the luncheon, which runs from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Registration is available on the website. For more information or to register by phone, call Kara Caldwell at 602-812-3942.
