Event description

Description

Although we speak out strongly against domestic and family violence as a society, it continues because, as individuals, we often choose to stay silent. When confronted with the signs of abusive behaviour, we can make excuses and downplay our instinct to step in.

Domestic and family violence won’t go away by itself – it needs our intervention to break the cycle. It needs everyday people to take responsibility for learning the signs and taking action to stop domestic and family violence.

To start this journey, please join us at our inaugural fundraiser dinner and Live auction to raise awareness and much needed funds to help survivors of domestic violence! Experience first hand from those who have used their personal domestic violence experience to rise above it an achieve greater things in life.

Our Keynote Speakers will include Julie Chu Miss Hawai'i USA 2018 is a survivor of Domestic Violence, a special needs Teacher for children, a committee member of the special Olympics and also an Author for children's books. Julie has an amazing story as a survivor who was relentless to continue to achieve her goals.
