Annual Gala

Each year, the Women’s Center hosts a Benefit to raise funds to support our work. It’s 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-saving services to every adult and child turning to us for help, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Join us this year to celebrate our 40th Anniversary! 

Our 40th Anniversary Gala will be Friday, April 10, 2015 at the Amber Room in Danbury, CT with a special presentation honoring Past Presidents.
