Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October 1-31

There are several ways YOU can support the Aid to Victims of Violence (AVV) program throughout the month!

Take a stand in October.
October is the month in which we would have held the Chefs Take a Stand: Men Against Domestic Violence event to raise funds for our AVV program. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we’ve had to cancel this popular event again in 2021.

But, YOU can help stop domestic violence by supporting the AVV program with a gift today! Or by participating in any of the special activities listed below.


Raffle Baskets

Tickets are $1 each or 8 for $5. With 17 baskets/items to bid on, there’s something for everyone!

Week Without Violence

October 18-23

An online fundraising campaign to be held in place of Chefs Take a Stand.

Reach out to your networks.
In place of the Chefs Take a Stand event, we’ll hold an online crowdfunding campaign during YWCA USA’s Week Without Violence, October 18 – 23, to raise funds to support the Aid to Victims of Violence program. Last year’s online fundraising efforts raised just over $10K, and we’d love to top that this year.

Here’s how you can help. Please share this website post with your friends and ask them to join you in making a gift to the AVV program!

Wear purple; raise awareness.
Go Purple Day (Domestic Violence Awareness Day) is when people wear purple to spark conversations and raise awareness about domestic violence. On Go Purple Day, we will hold a special match promotion with a “Hot Pot” of funds donated by a few of the “Chefs” that competed in the 2018 and 2019 events. Stay tuned for details on how to double your impact. You can also contribute to the “Hot Pot” to make even more of a difference.
