Inspiring Women Benefit

November 10, 2012
Gannett Headquarters - McLean, VA
The Inspiring Women Benefit on Saturday, November 10th, was an evening to remember! Not only was it a fun evening of dinner, silent & live auctions and a lively dance floor (complete with conga line!), we are also proud to announce that we raised over $318,000 in gross proceeds - almost $22,000 more than our goal.

This will help us close the funding gap for 2012, supporting the vital services we provide at significantly reduced fees for the most vulnerable in our community. Nearly 300 guests were moved by Paige and Amanda, The Women's Center clients who came to tell their inspiring stories of trauma and recovery - click here to watch Paige's story now.

We want to thank everyone who contributed to the success of our event, and look forward to next year's gala!
