One of the ways we will use this campaign to enact lasting, sustainable change in our community is by raising money for local non-profits whose primary mission is in the service of women. We will be donating a portion of the proceeds from our silent auction at the event to the organizations below. Donations placed through the link to the left will also be split between all of the non-profits involved (we are a not-for-profit organization as well).
