Your Light Will Help Overcome the Problem of Violence in the World

Your support will help shine a light on the problem of domestic violence and sexual assault in our community.

Come and join your First Step family at this fun, springtime event and share a delicious dinner, drinks, dancing and silent auction.  We hope to make this an annual event.

By purchasing an event sponsorship or buying a ticket to the “First Step You Are the Light Gala,” you help to ensure that when a victim of domestic or sexual violence finds the courage to reach out for help, First Step will be there.

First Step stands ready to help survivors who need support to transform their lives from fear and trauma to love and safety, but we need your help.

Your support of this gala will provide free services, such as shelter, transitional housing, counseling, legal information, children’s programs, assault response, food, transportation and advocacy. First Step even has a program for the pets of the families in shelter, so that furry loved ones don’t get left behind.

Also, funds raised at this annual gala will help First Step diversify its funding base to become less dependent on government funding.

We will be presenting awards and celebrating the work of a few key people who have made a significant contribution to First Step’s mission in a short program, but otherwise, the evening will be yours to celebrate, feel good about your gift, have fun, and enjoy the music, food, dancing and company.
