Help our cause by contributing to our fundraising efforts.

No act of generosity is too small to make a difference.

On behalf of our event Co-Chairs Dr. Crystal Clark and Kate Migon, we invite you to join us for Resilience's Evening of Impact on Wednesday, October 27 from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Galleria Marchetti. Guests will have the choice to attend either in person or virtually. Proceeds of Evening of Impact go towards providing our services, which are 100% free for survivors and their loved ones. 

This year's theme, A Journey of Resilience, honors the resilience that we constantly witness survivors embody, and also the collective journey of resilience that we've all embarked on during the challenges of the past year and a half. After a period of so much isolation, and many additional barriers to receiving help, it has been an extraordinary journey for survivors. We hope Evening of Impact can be a time of healing for those impacted by sexual violence and time for our community to be together, reflect, celebrate and connect through our shared support.   

We hope you'll join us for our biggest and most celebrated gathering of the year. We're looking forward to being together with our allies, partners, friends and supporters once again. Guests will have the choice to either gather with us safely in person, or tune in virtually from home.  A link will be provided before the program.

Many thanks to our Evening of Impact Event Committee:  Dr. Crystal Clark (Co-Chair), Kate Migon (Co-Chair), Jennifer Glawe, Sarah King, Alexandra Musgrove, and Katherine Stabler.  

We also thank our Evening of Impact Silent Auction Committee:  Jennifer Zale (Chair), Andrea King, Megan Lawlor, Alexandra Musgrove, Molly Nugent, and Olivia Weyers.
