Voices Against Violence Luncheon
Oct 4 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
Voices Against Violence Luncheon @ The Dayton Arcade

Each October, YWCA Dayton recognizes the strength and resilience of domestic violence survivors at a special fundraising event to support YWCA Dayton’s domestic violence shelter and support services, including its 24-hour crisis hotline. Formerly called the YWomen Breakfast, it has been refreshed (and expanded!) as the Voices Against Violence Breakfast and the Voices Against Violence Lunch to better reflect the platform it provides for both survivors and supporters to be a voice for change.

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 under-served, 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, personally or professionally.

REGISTER NOW. Interested in serving as a table captain? Contact events@ywcadayton.org.
