The Domestic Violence Crisis Center (DVCC)will host its 19thAnnual Voices of Courage Spring Luncheon, on May 20 from11:30am to 1pm.
The virtual event will feature keynote speaker, Donna Ferrato, an award-winning photojournalist, author, domestic violence prevention activist, and feminist. Donna’s work was selected as one of Time magazine’s “100 Most Influential Images of All Time.” Her powerful images and the stories behind them have helped to bring domestic violence out of the shadows and into the light.
Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase a special “Voices of Courage” boxed lunch from Aux Delice, available for pick up at the Darien or Westport locations on the day of the event. Aux Delice will donate a percentage of the sales from the lunch to DVCC.The fundraising event will also feature an online silent auction that opens May 14.

“The past year has been uniquely challenging for domestic violence victims and their children given the isolation and dangerous scenarios caused by the pandemic,” said Suzanne Adam. “The Voices of Courage luncheon is a chance for our community to connect, unite, and support domestic violence victims who rely on the lifesaving services and support we provide.”
