October is National Domestic Violence awareness month, and each year Every Woman’s Place hosts our annual Power of the Purse event to raise awareness and funds that support survivors of domestic and sexual violence in West Michigan.
Save the date….October 14…and get ready to enjoy an evening with the theme ‘Superheroes’…celebrating all those individuals in our community who, in their day-to-day actions, bring solace, support, and strength to the survivors we serve.
The highlight of the evening will, of course, be our Runway Show featuring luxury purses for bid, but we’ll also be presenting our silent auction (completely online!) and our famous Deals and Steals corner.
As part of the celebration, we’ll also be honoring two ‘everyday superheroes’ from our community with this year’s Exceptional Advocacy award recipients–one community member and one EWP staff member–who have contributed substantially to the the cause of ADVOCACY for victims and survivors of domestic or sexual violence. Nominations are open through September 1, 2021–nominate today at bit.ly/exceptional-advocacy.
