BENEFITING: Sanctuary for Families
EVENT DATE: Oct 28, 2014
As members of the Pro Bono Council, we need your help to reach our goal to raise $2500 (10% of the overall $25,000 fundraising goal) for the Sanctuary for Families' Above and Beyond Pro Bono Achievement Awards and Benefit.
Sanctuary for Families is a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the needs of victims of domestic violence, sex trafficking and related forms of gender violence. Through its range of clinical, legal, shelter, children's and economic services, Sanctuary for Families empowers and transforms the lives of thousands of adults and children each year to move from fear and abuse, to safety and stability. Learn more about this incredible organization at: www.sanctuaryforfamilies.org
Did you know that Sanctuary is the largest provider in the U.S. of legal services exclusively for victims of domestic violence and sex trafficking? This is made possible through an incredible network of professionals who support the organization through various pro bono efforts.
Each year, Sanctuary hosts an annual Above and Beyond Pro Bono Achievement Awards and Benefit to honor members of the legal community who have gone "above and beyond" by providing outstanding advocacy on behalf of Sanctuary clients.
We hope that you will join us on October 28th and consider making a donation! Every dollar counts, whether it's $5 or $500 (or more!) we appreciate your gift to Sanctuary.
Love, Shira & Mia
PS: (from Mia) Shira won't tell you this but she was a recipient of the award last year! How great is that? We are both so honored to pay-it-forward and raise money to continue this important work. Keep up to date with the organization on Twitter @sffny #getoffthesidelines
