You won’t want to miss our 8th Annual Walk Against Domestic Violence. Join us as we Shine a Light on Domestic Violence on October 13, 2018. This year, we want to reflect on all the different types of people whose lives are forever affected by domestic violence. We all want to speak out, because we all have a responsibility to shine a light on the impact of domestic violence on our community. We hope you will join us for our Walk, followed by lunch, Ashley’s Ice Cream, and your chance at winning lots of exciting raffle prizes!

This year, Family CT is participating in the Purple Purse Challenge! The Purple Purse Challenge is a friendly fundraising campaign launched by The Allstate Foundation in which organizations that serve survivors of domestic violence compete to raise the most money, with the top teams winning grand prize cash donations.  The goal of the Purple Purse Challenge is to raise awareness about domestic violence and financial abuse, and to raise money to serve survivors of domestic violence who might not otherwise have the financial resources to leave an abusive relationship.

It starts on October 2, 2018 and a total of $795,000 will be given away to organizations in the Challenge. Family CT is competing against almost 300 other nationwide non-profit organizations, so help us be one of the top fundraisers for our chance win the $100,000 grand prize!

For every $100 donated by a single donor, that donor will earn one raffle ticket and be entered to win a Purple Purse designed by tennis champion and Purple Purse ambassador, Serena Williams. The more you donate, the more chances you have to win a beautiful limited-edition, handcrafted leather purse ($400 value).  Drawing will be held upon conclusion of the Challenge on October 31.
