More than 300 guests walked past 25 powerful, soul-stirring images created by survivors of domestic violence expressing their personal healing journeys as they entered the “Unmask the Violence: Empowered Voices” Gala to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of A Safe Place on October 6 at the Chicago Marriott Lincolnshire.

Along with the art exhibit, cocktail reception, dinner, fabulous live and silent auction, opportunity drawing, raffle prizes, and awards, the event raised $248,000 for programs and services for victims of domestic violence that include the emergency shelter, permanent housing, legal advocacy, support groups, prevention and education outreach, and more.

We are so grateful for your continued support!

Generous sponsors of the event included Autohaus on Edens, Michael & Andrea Rosengarden, Abbvie, the Steve & Barbara Anderson Family Charitable Fund, Melinda & Andrew Bush, The Chicago Bears, Northwestern Memorial Healthcare, Schlesinger & Strauss LLC, Victoria Trauscht, David & Patty Anderskow, AON, Mary Kay Foy & Tim Vezeau, Nancy & Marvin Himmelstein, IRON HORSE Seating, Libertyville Bank and Trust Company, Bonnie & Gene Minsky, Ernie & Dawn Rogers, and Rust-Oleum.
