WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- More than 400 community members gathered at the Ritz-Carlton on April 13, for My Sisters’ Place’s annual Spring Benefit, Still Behind Closed Doors.
The evening focused on honoring My Sisters’ Place’s history as a grassroots organization while addressing the need for continued effort to bring issues of abuse into the public spotlight. Altogether the event raised well over $600,000 in support of My Sisters’ Place’s mission to help victims of domestic violence and human trafficking. Special guests included members of the New York Giants Organization and elected officials.
My Sisters’ Place awarded the Voices of Change Award to Sara Mahoney and Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty.
