To the Editor:
On behalf of the Women’s Center, I extend my heartfelt gratitude to all who supported our 11th Annual “Shelter from the Storm” benefit at the Amber Room Colonnade on March 8th and made it the most successful fundraising year yet! The critically needed funds support our Domestic Violence, Sexual Assault and Resource Services programs, which are provided free of charge and confidentially.
The Women’s Center was proud to honor Eileen Walker this year for her steadfast, active and generous support of our programs and services.
Our most sincere thanks to the Newtown businesses who donated auction items, including Avance Esthetiques European Skincare & Day Spa, Newtown Savings Bank, Ricci’s Salon and Yoga Dimensions.
Thank you to everyone who was a part of this special evening and my most heartfelt appreciation goes to Glori Norwitt and Rebecca Ciota, 2013 Event Co-Chairs, and the many volunteers. It is this overwhelming support that validates our work and sustains us in our mission of “working to end the violence.”
