An Evening of Empowerment: Hero Edition

SAVE’s 2017 fundraiser, An Evening of Empowerment — Hero Edition, was tremendously successful! We celebrated our heroes — the individuals and families we serve — and many others, including  Teresa Francis, our Volunteer of the Year, My Manna Link Foundation, our Volunteer Group of the Year, and The East Bay Community Foundation, our Community Partner of the Year.

We also debuted our 2017 Evening of Empowerment Film which features other SAVE heroes, donors and advocates Donna Somerville of Grateful Gatherings, Shobana Ramamurthi, and Chris Muraoka.

SAVE is so grateful to all who supported our event, including our donors, sponsors, and volunteers. We exceeded our fundraising goal, having raised $150,000, funds that will bring hope, empowerment, and peace to victims of domestic violence. Donor gifts will support our many free domestic violence victim programs, including our 30-bed emergency shelter, our 24-hour hotline, counseling, and our walk-in Empowerment Center support services.
