STAMFORD, Conn. – The annual Raise Your Glass, Raise Awareness Gala supporting The Center for Sexual Assault Crisis Counseling and Education in Stamford will be held Friday, April 29, from 7 to 11 p.m. at The Waters Edge at Giovanni’s in Darien.
This year, attendees will raise their glasses to the bravest person in the process – the survivor. The Center is the beacon of hope many survivors need and the place where victims in the communities we serve take their first steps towards the courageous process of recovery. Through the center’s free and confidential counseling, advocacy support and education programs, thousands of people can overcome the effects of abuse through love and acceptance.
To represent all survivors, the gala is honoring a woman who knows what it is to walk the road of recovery with the Center – Cora Delibertis – a survivor of child sexual assault, advocate and volunteer.
The gala includes a seated dinner and a chance to bid on auction items including a trip to Bermuda, a week in Cape Cod, sports tickets and much more. Entertainment provided by The Magic of Em and music provided by the Retro Express Band.
Here is the program schedule:
- 7 p.m. – Cocktails and silent auction
- 8 p.m. – Dinner and dancing. Attendees will be tantalized with specialty cocktails from SpikedSeltzer and desserts by Sweet Lisa's Exquisite Cakes, as featured on the "Today" show and "Rachael Ray Show."
All proceeds from the event will go to the Center's crisis counseling, advocacy and education programs, serving the towns of Darien, Greenwich, New Canaan, Norwalk, Stamford, Weston, Westport and Wilton.
Tickets range from $150 for individual tickets to $1,000 for groups of four plus recognition in signage. Click here to purchase tickets.
Last year, the Center provided free and confidential crisis counseling to over 480 individuals and age appropriate prevention education programs to nearly 14,000 children and adults, helping move communities closer to a world free from sexual violence.
