SAVE Fundraiser September 30

Submitted By Tina Fernandez

On Saturday, September 30, SAVE (Safe Alternatives to Violent Environments) will host its annual fundraising gala, An Evening of Empowerment: Hero Edition, at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Newark from 6 to 11 p.m. Funds raised will benefit SAVEÕs comprehensive domestic violence victim support services, including its 30-bed safe house, 24-hour crisis hotline, individual and family counseling, and Empowerment Center.

Because SAVE services are offered free of charge, community support is critical to client success. Join SAVE and bring peace, empowerment, and hope to some of the most vulnerable individuals in our communities Ð victims of domestic violence.

The hero theme is a chance for SAVE to celebrate those who inspire the organizationÕs staff and volunteers every day: the courageous and resilient individuals and families they serve. In turn, SAVE is encouraging gala guests to share, wear, and talk about who or what inspires them. In communicating heroes and inspirations, the evening will be a celebration of what makes community members unique and what unites us. The event will also be SAVEÕs first efforts of the year to draw attention to October being National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, a nationwide effort to highlight the issue of intimate partner violence.

Asked about the event, SAVEÕs Executive Director, Dr. Yasi Safinya-Davies remarked, ÒIt will be a great opportunity to hear about our innovative programs, meet other movement makers in our community, and celebrate the strong people we serve!Ó

An Evening of Empowerment: Hero Edition will include a wine welcome during the registration hour, live entertainment, the presentation of SAVEÕs Community Partner and Volunteer of the Year Awards, the screening of SAVEÕs newest short film, dinner, silent and live auctions, and more! Sponsors to date include the Beck Family Foundation, Blocka Construction, the East Bay Community Foundation, Fremont Bank, Nicole Causey/Legacy Real Estate, PetersenDean, the Randall A. Wolf Family Foundation, Robson Homes, Sisters of the Holy Family, and Washington Hospital Healthcare System. For a complete list of sponsors, visit SAVEÕs website: www.
