Why the Purple Gala?

The PURPLE GALA was created by Maribel Garcia, Founder and President of Break the Silence, a survivor of domestic violence. Her experience at the hands of abusive partners nearly drove her to suicide and compelled her to help others that are living or have lived in abusive relationships.

Funds raised at the Gala will be used to support existing programs of Break the Silence Foundation:
  • Receive counseling
  • Crisis intervention
  • Provide resources to outreach programs and education
  • Help secure a building that can ultimately serve as the haven of a new program, the Chrysalis
  •  

Survivors must be separated from their abusers and what better way to affect that than to keep the family together, rather than having to be separated due to not having a place to stay in.

We have come a long way, yet we still need your support. Your generous contribution will help us expand our mission of putting lives together one piece at a time.
