Each October, YWCA Dayton recognizes the strength and resilience of domestic violence survivors at our annual YWomen Breakfast, a special fundraising event to support YWCA Dayton’s domestic violence shelter and support services, including its 24-hour crisis hotline. As the only domestic violence shelter provider in Montgomery and Preble counties, and the operator of Preble County's only 24/7 crisis and domestic violence hotline and the oldest such hotline in Montgomery County, we provide shelter and support every day to more than 100 women and children seeking lives free from violence.

This event also features the recognition of our annual Marsha Froelich Survivor Award, which honors women who embody Froelich's spirit of survivorship and resilience and give graciously to others. The late Marsha Froelich, a former development director at YWCA Dayton, was a fearless leader who advocated -- at work and in her spare time -- for the underserved, the women of the YW, and those within the community who did not have a voice. This award recognizes a woman whose words and actions serve to exemplify, inspire, set an example, and celebrate the spirit of a survivor who has overcome the odds and continued on an amazing journey, both personally and professionally.

Interested in attending or serving as a table captain? Contact Marissa Buckles, director of development: mbuckles@ywcadayton.org or 937-461-5550 x129.
