Fighting For Women With Fashion @ CenterStage @ NoDa

Fighting for Women with Fashion began in 2011 when United Family Services, members of the Women Physicians Section of the Mecklenburg County Medical Society, and members of the Charlotte Women’s Bar, now Women Lawyers of Charlotte (WLC), came together to support the community’s efforts to end domestic violence and raise money for the building of the Clyde and Ethel Dickson Domestic Violence Shelter.

This event has raised more than $365,000.00 to benefit Safe Alliance and assist victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Tickets go on sale Aug. 1.
