The event’s theme, “Dancing in the Moonlight” sets the tone for a fun and festive evening to support DVCC’s programs and services.
The evening starts at 6:30 p.m. and will include cocktails outside on the terrace, 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 Oct. 15. Anyone, regardless of whether 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 touched by it,” Adam said. “Community support is critical to continue providing DVCC’s lifesaving services for survivors.”
