Annual Gala


Thank you to all who attended this year's spring Gala, a successful evening and enjoyable celebration of our good work. We are incredibly thankful for our 2017 sponsors and supporters helping us raise nearly $250,000!!

Each year, the Women's Center hosts a Benefit to raise funds in support of our work. It is our largest fundraising event of the year. In addition to fundraising, our goal for the Gala is to celebrate all of the good that we do. The event features a live and silent auction with donations from many wonderful area merchants and friends of the Center. With the generosity and support we receive each year, we are able to provide critically needed, often life-savings services to every adult and child turning to us for help, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

$15,000 Cocktail Sponsor (includes tickets for 20 guests, special recognition during cocktail hour, recognition in program, and program center spread ad)
