On Wednesday, June 5th, 2019, over 1,400 other supporters and guests gathered for Sanctuary’s 2019 Annual Benefit. Together, we celebrated Barneys New York Studio Services Director Laura Mannix Spring and Sullivan & Cromwell Partner Garrard R. Beeney for their outstanding commitment to supporting survivors of gender-based violence.
Thanks to the generosity of people like you, we raised a record-breaking $2.36 million in support of the thousands of adult and child gender violence survivors we serve every year.
A special “thank you” to Seth Meyers for hosting the evening, our co-chairs and event leadership, our Board of Directors, and to Sanctuary Survivor Leader and advocate Flore, who shared her story of empowerment and resilience.
From all of us at Sanctuary, thank you for being part of our growing community of survivors and advocates – watch #WeAreSanctuary. Together we can build a world in which freedom from gender violence is a basic human right.
