We will have food, drink, and great company at the event. This year we will honor longtime supporter and former Board Chair, Anne Raffaelli with the Mary Popit Partner in Caring Award. The NEW Light Alumna award will be given to Cynthia Rowe, who will share her compelling journey out of homelessness.

And from top-notch dinner clubs to Solidcore classes, and more, we’ll have fantastic auction items! Did we mention how much fun the event is? If you were there last year, you know just how exciting the live auction and “Raise The Paddle” section of the evening was.

It’s been a challenging time for all of us as we adjust our days, our budgets and our expectations to COVID-19. And now, add a city and country grasping for footing after the death of an unarmed black man by a white police officer and we all feel even more out of control, unstable, and concerned about the future. Here at NEW we know that one way we can process our own feelings is to think about the needs and feelings of others.

We need you. The women need you. Your community needs you. Now more than ever women and children in DC need a safe and stable place to live.
