As the only hope for many victims of abuse in our community, DOVE Center thanks all who participated in the 5th Annual Gala to help victims become victors.

Thank you to our amazing community, and particularly Joe Gibbons of Carpets Plus, for making our 5th Annual fundraising gala a great success! In total, we had more than 70 local businesses support the gala through sponsorships, silent auction items, or in-kind items. We also had a full house and a waiting list of guests we couldn't accommodate. With more sponsorships, more tickets sold, and more funds raised during the event than any previous year, we are grateful to announce that the event raised 50% more than last year, topping off at over $128,000 donated by our generous sponsors and guests. Thank you to all who stood together to end abuse in our community!

We were grateful to be joined by so many who knew and loved Kristy Manzanares; and honored to be entrusted to pay tribute to her life of love and celebrate her light that continues to shine. As Lindsey Boyer, our Executive Director, stated that night, "Stories of love, courage and victory live forever through those who keep the light burning as they, too, find victory in the face of defeat."

Victor Rivers, our keynote speaker, was one survivor who found victory in the face of defeat. He credits the "angels," as he aptly calls them, who intervened to help him change the direction of his life. He explained that the interventions of teachers, coaches, and neighborhood moms, were the key to his ability to break the cycle of violence and speak up to help others do the same.

Thank you for being part of the solution!

We hope you'll join us next year on March 2, 2019 at SunRiver St. George.
