Join us for Together We Bake’s first-ever virtual Empowerment Gala. Be inspired by the remarkable stories of our empowered alumni and celebrate the women we serve on June 3 from 7 pm - 8 pm.
The Empowerment Gala (formerly the Empowerment Breakfast) raises awareness about the issues facing the women we serve in our community who are experiencing homelessness, returning from the criminal justice system, recovering from mental health and/or substance abuse histories, and women who are survivors of domestic violence or recent immigrants.
In 2019 we welcomed over 300 guests to celebrate women's empowerment and progress toward self-sufficiency. We were touched by the graduates who shared their accounts of unbelievable resilience and determination.
This year, we’ll be welcomed by Senator Tim Kaine and are honored to have Dana Bash serve as our emcee. We’re going to feature our graduates, share what it’s been like to support our community in such unusual times, and do what we love most, bake!
Thank you to our generous sponsors!
