NEW Gala 2019: Another Success

This year’s Moving Out of Homelessness Auction and Gala saw both new and long-time supporters come together with NEW alumnae and staff, for a good cause and a good time. Hosting this year’s event in the bright Shakespeare Theatre’s Harman Center, NEW raised more than $130,000 by auctioning off items like drinking history tours, cooking classes, swing dance lessons, and even tickets to the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor which this year honored Dave Chappelle.

We all had a great time! And we are, as always, so thankful for our supporters who so generously help us help women in DC achieve stability, confidence and a home.

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.

Help us as we close our fiscal year.
