Women Supporting Women { 12.23.13 }

23 Dec

Two weeks ago I hosted the last Women Supporting Women party of the year and thus fulfilled my 2013 New Year’s Resolution.

It’s always hard getting folks together around the holidays so extra thanks to everyone who squeezed this in amid the holiday madness. It was a fun night where we chatted weddings, pet behaviors with our resident vet and best of all weird (or welcomed in some cases) masseuse experiences. The whole reason behind the night of course was to raise money for a good cause. We got over $400 for Sanctuary for Families. Sanctuary for Families provides domestic violence victims, sex trafficking victims and their children with a range of services. With nine office and shelter locations in NYC they provide women with clinical services (counseling), legal services, shelter refuge (crisis shelters and transitional shelters), children’s programs, community outreach to raise awareness and empowerment programs. After learning about SFF I thought the goals and mission of their organization aligned with ours perfectly. Their program is doing a great service in reaching the women and their families affected by domestic violence. SFF seems to provide a comprehensive approach to helping these women to a path towards a brighter future.

My 2013 resolution was Women Supporting Women – specifically to have a group of women over 3 times this year, donate to charities doing something great for other women and enjoy ourselves in the process. This was the first year I made a resolution, stuck to it and saw it through to the end. Special thanks to the ladies who supported this and helped me with my resolution.
