Sanctuary’s 2023 Zero Tolerance Benefit was a smashing success, and it was all because of our incredible community!

So many of you braved the smoke and helped us celebrate our incredible honorees: Jennifer L. Kroman, Yana Lukeman, and Alita T. Wingfield. Our thanks to Seth Meyers for hosting, to Grandmaster Flash for getting us on the dance floor, and to our inspiring Survivor Leader, Ashley, for sharing her Sanctuary journey.

At this year’s benefit, we raised over $2.7 million, our highest-grossing event in the 25 years of Zero Tolerance. This incredible accomplishment speaks volumes about YOUR commitment to creating a world where freedom from gender violence is a basic human right.

Thank you for helping us improve the lives of over 7,200 adults and children each year.

We believe that freedom from gender violence is a basic human right.
