Join My Sister’s Place as they commemorate Domestic Violence Awareness Month and celebrate the indomitable spirit of the women and children they serve. The Power of the Purse Gala will benefit the My Sister’s Place community and unveil their new emergency shelter.
The third annual Power of the Purse event features a silent auction of luxury handbags and accessories, wine and palate teasers from fine DC restaurants, a special raffle for a ladies’ diamond Movado watch donated by Pulitzer-prize winning jazz composer Wynton Marsalis, and spectacular surprises throughout the evening.
As DC’s oldest domestic violence shelter, My Sister’s Place provides comprehensive programs and services that holistically address domestic violence and the unique challenges survivors face. These include a confidential 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter and transitional-to-permanent housing, therapeutic children’s programming, after-care services, residential and non-residential counseling and case-management, community outreach and education in English and Spanish, and referrals to our community partners based on each survivor’s individual needs.
WHEN: Wednesday, October 10 from 6-9 p.m.
