BENEFITING: LOVE LIFE NOW FOUNDATION INC
EVENT DATE: Feb 28, 2014
A formal event fundraiser that gages and seeks to educate men on how they can be part of the solution in ending the epidemic by coordinating a series of speakers who share from their perspectives how they have been a part in helping. The male speakers the night of the Gala range from Male Domestic Violence Advocates to prominent male figures in the community.
The White Ribbon Campaign was created by a handful of Canadian men in 1991 on the second anniversary of one man's massacre of 14 women in Montreal. The Campaign began as a way to urge men to speak out against violence against women. This Gala is a venue to educate men about the ways they can be part of the solution in ending the violence against women, spread awareness against Domestic Violence as well as raise funds to give back to shelters. Love Life Now Foundation provides literary resources at all of their events for attendees to take away and hopefully get the discussion going with peers in their own communities.
