You can start browsing our Together auction NOW by clicking here! Bidding will be open between 12 p.m. on April 26 and 11 a.m. on April 27. Raffle tickets are also available now. Scroll to the bottom of the page to view details!


Join us for our 12th annual TOGETHER! brunch for women ages 10-110! Enjoy a fun morning at the Ritz-Carlton shopping our fabulous silent auction, partaking in raffles, and taking in an empowering program.

This year, all bidding will be done via cell phone, so make sure yours is charged. We’ve gone mobile because it’s easier to browse items once, and then bid — and outbid others — from the comfort of your own table. And, yes, we are bringing back the complimentary photo booth.

After the shopping and a gourmet breakfast, you will hear from successful women who will share their stories of moving through personal challenges to make their dreams come true. As always, proceeds raised go to support the programs of Safe Connections preventing and ending domestic and sexual violence while helping victims reclaim their lives as survivors.

  • When: Saturday, April 27, 2019 | 10 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
  • Where: The Ritz-Carlton, 100 Carondelet Plaza, 63105 (map it)
  • Cost: $65 per adult ticket; $30 per youth ticket for ages 10-25
  • Registration: Submit registration here
