The event theme, “Dancing in the Moonlight,” sets the tone for a fun and festive evening in support of DVCC programs and services.
The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. and will include cocktails outside on the patio, followed by dinner and dancing with Fairfield’s favorite cover band, Fake ID. Tickets can be purchased online, here.
“We are looking forward to a great event,” said DVCC Executive Director Suzanne Adam.
The silent auction will go live on October 15. Anyone, whether or not they can attend in person, is free to bid on items simply by registering online.
“Domestic violence is a pervasive problem that does not discriminate. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by it,” Adam said. “Community support is essential to continue providing vital DVCC services to survivors.”
Since 1980, the Domestic Violence Crisis Center (DVCC) has provided counseling and advocacy services to victims of domestic violence and their children. DVCC is the only state-certified agency recognized by the Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence (CCADV), serving the communities of Norwalk, Stamford, New Canaan, Darien, Westport, Weston and Wilton.
The role of the DVCC is to help people who are victims of domestic violence, whatever their level, and to help them create a safer environment for their well-being and that of their family. Our services include housing and financial advocacy, legal advocacy; individual and group trauma-informed counselling; and emergency safe housing. All victim services are free and confidential, and all services offered are multicultural/multilingual.
