The 11th Annual Breaking the Silence Luncheon on April 19 was truly inspiring. We are so grateful to our sponsors, Table Hosts, guests and two 16-year-old survivors of sexual abuse who shared their stories of trauma and triumph with the help of Kristi House. In addition to a $150,000 Challenge Grant from a private family foundation, BAC Florida Bank was our Luncheon Legacy Sponsor! BAC has been a top-tier, 10-year Breaking the Silence supporter, and we were so pleased to have their milestone sponsorship this year.
For the Challenge Grant, every donation made and every ticket sold was matched dollar for dollar. Donations are still being accepted at this link.
The Silent Auction was a treat for guests, getting great bargains on favorite area eateries and attractions, as well as on gifts, trips and jewelry. The Kendra Scott Mystery Box/Jewelry Pull was a sold-out success with guests purchasing all the mystery boxes of Kendra Scott jewelry!
