On Friday, November 3, more than 250 people attended our inaugural Lotus Ball gala. Our special guest was former Cardinals player and abuse survivor Rick Ankiel, who discussed the importance of Safe Connections’ mission, and inspired the crowd with his personal story of challenge and perseverance.
This event would not have been possible without the generous support of our presenting sponsor, The Marjorie and Marc Seldin Philanthropic Fund, as well as our corporate sponsors:
Husch Blackwell | The Lawrence Group | Philadelphia Insurance
Cannon Design | McMahon Berger | Stonebridge Senior Living | ISC Contracting
We would also like to recognize our wonderful steering committee, who worked hard to plan and coordinate this event: Co-chair Dannae Delano, Co-chair Channeka Buckingham, Board Chair Vicki Dolan, Monica Conners, Katie Flaschar, Brooke Foster, Eric Hahn, Beth Letscher and Diane Metzger.
Last but not least, we are thankful for everyone — staff, volunteers, and guests — who made attending our inaugural Lotus Ball a priority. Your support makes Safe Connections’ work to prevent and end domestic and sexual violence possible.Back to All News
