Stamford, CT – On October 13, in the heart of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, DVCC will host its 7th Annual fall fundraising event – Harvest Fest. This year’s event theme is “Boots, Bourbon, and Bling!” Guests are encouraged to don their cowboy boots and bring on the bling to raise essential funds for DVCC’s lifesaving, transformative services.

“Domestic violence is a pervasive problem that does not discriminate. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by it,” said DVCC’s Executive Director, Suzanne Adam. “This event is not only a critical fundraiser for DVCC’s services but also an opportunity to raise community awareness and shine a light on this issue.”
The evening will feature cocktails outside on the terrace, a fall harvest dinner menu and dancing. The event will also feature an online silent auction which will go live on October 1.
