It’s an elegant and festive evening featuring a cocktail reception, silent & live auctions, dinner, and so much more!

Our comprehensive programs address intimate partner violence, sexual violence and economic hardship through emergency services, legal and medical advocacy, counseling, economic empowerment and housing assistance, and prevention education.
