Keeping Dreams Alive

We will celebrate our 40th Anniversary by hosting our annual gala, Keeping Dreams Alive, virtually on Facebook Friday, October 2, 2020 at 5:30pm.

Our annual gala raises funds to support the programs and services we provide to create a world free from domestic violence.

We hope you will consider helping us celebrate 40 years of change. Please click here to purchase raffle tickets or bid on a wide variety of silent auction items!

Our bee’s knees silent auction will begin on September 26th and will feature ‘Benches for Change’, this year’s Homewood Art Installation!

Since we know many will be missing the delicious food that is always a hit at our in person gala, we had a menu and recipes created for your enjoyment!

Local Chef, Tim Dudik, volunteered his time and talents to create a menu just for us! Please click KDA Gala Menu & Recipes to print your copy today!
