Bethany Hamilton, the international surfer who was 13 years old when she lost her arm in a shark attack on Kauai's North Shore, will visit Victoria on Thursday.

Hamilton, a now 22-year-old professional surfer, travels the country as an inspirational speaker, encouraging others to pursue their dreams and grow their relationship with Christ.

Hamilton's autobiography, "Soul Surfer: A True Story of Faith, Family, and Fighting to Get Back on the Board," was released in 2004. A film about her journey, "Soul Surfer," was released in 2011.

"A Day with Bethany Hamilton," presented by the Golden Crescent Habitat for Humanity, features two speaking events Thursday, including a noon luncheon at the Victoria Country Club and an evening event at 7 p.m. in Faith Family Church.

Hamilton and her mother, Cheri Hamilton, will speak, answer questions and sign autographs during the event.

Tickets are available through itickets.com. Individual sponsorships of $500 include two luncheon tickets, reserved seating, early admittance and autograph opportunities or two evening VIP tickets with a meet-and-greet reception, hors d'oeuvres and photographs with Hamilton.

Raffle tickets are $5 and may be purchased at Habitat for Humanity, for a chance to win a Bethany Hamilton-autographed surfboard.

Ten percent of ticket proceeds will be dedicated to new home construction projects scheduled this fall in Jackson and Goliad counties.
