Save the Date to Celebrate: March 11, 2017

Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC) provides services that are critical to saving lives and breaking the cycle of violence that exist within families. Those who need CAWC’s services are often those with the least resources to draw upon to help them find solutions. CAWC helps survivors of domestic violence by providing emergency shelter, legal advocacy, counseling and other essential resources to help single women and mothers with children to escape abuse and increase their safety, rebuild their lives and restore their hope. Last year, CAWC’s Greenhouse Shelter provided a safe refuge for 142 adults and 154 children escaping domestic violence. Our 24-hr Hotline received 3,950 calls. CAWC has been providing these lifesaving services for 40 years! And now YOU have the opportunity to celebrate this milestone with the supporters and staff of CAWC.

On March 11, 2017, CAWC will host its 40th Anniversary annual Sounds of Silence Gala to “break the silence” surrounding domestic violence and to raise support to provide essential services to those who need it most. We hope that you will join us in our efforts by agreeing to be a sponsor or purchasing tickets for this black-tie optional event.

Whether you buy tickets or become a sponsor, your support will help to provide a new life for survivors of domestic violence. You will be joining other sponsors like the Chicago Bears, Allstate, Deloitte, Northern Trust, and many others.

So please join us as we celebrate CAWC's 40th Anniversary at the 2017 Sounds of Silence Gala at the Hyatt Regency Chicago. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kevin Feldman at (773) 489-9081 or THANK YOU!
