When the Covid-19 pandemic began, it became clear to charities worldwide that normal operations methods would have to change, and quickly. The Women’s Refuge of Vero Beach was no exception. Unfortunately, there was no operational map to follow in this uncharted territory. The Refuge’s leadership knew we would no longer be able to count on our major fundraiser—the Women’s Refuge Third Annual Christmas Banquet. This elaborate affair grew in popularity and numbers in the past; usually drawing more than 300 guests.
So, when the Refuge’s Board and committee members decided to postpone the banquet until 2021, their creative minds came together to, instead, launch a series of private dinner parties. With these Holiday Soirées, various Refuge supporters will volunteer their homes to host unusual culinary events, all with diverse themes, virtual auctions, and unique entertainment. All proceeds meet a dire need for those who are struggling spiritually, mentally, and emotionally.
Now more than ever people need hope, and you can help transform a life by partnering with the Women’s Refuge this holiday season. Would you consider making a donation in support of our ministry?
