As dedicated supporters of Westchester County-based non-profit My Sister’s Place, our company will soon be honored at its annual spring benefit entitled “Still Behind Closed Doors.” The special evening is set to take place on Wednesday, April 13, 2016 at 6:30 PM at the Ritz Carlton in White Plains, N.Y., and will recognize our team members’ ongoing quest to join in on the organization’s mission to end domestic violence and human trafficking.
Since 1976, My Sisters’ Place has worked to end violence in intimate relationships and provide support for those affected by domestic violence and human trafficking including women, men and children throughout all of Westchester County. With humble beginnings, the local organization is now a top resource in the area, expanding its offerings to accommodate the changing times, and providing dependable advocacy, shelter, legal services and educational opportunities, as well as an overall guide to prevention. Its mission is to bring each member of society together with one common cause in mind—to end domestic violence and in turn, embrace the respect, equality and peacefulness of a healthy relationship.
Over the past few years, our Westchester team has proudly worked to engage thousands of people in My Sisters’ Place’s ultimate goal, holding various community-based events to raise awareness, as well as gather significant funds for resources. Recent specific events include our firm’s organization of “A Taste of Rye” and “A Taste of Larchmont,” two local restaurant crawls that together, have raised nearly $100,000.
“We are incredibly proud of our partnership and committed to doing all we can to ensure safe homes for everyone in Westchester County and beyond,” said our President and CEO, Paul Breunich.
The upcoming My Sisters’ Place spring gala will serve dinner and cocktails, as well as host a silent auction, with all proceeds benefitting the cause. Serving on the “Still Behind Closed Doors” committee is our very own Susan McDonnell, an agent from our Rye brokerage who is co-chair of the event, as well as Rye brokerage manager Pati Holmes and team members Liz Bradley and Linda Darer.
“I am honored to be a part of yet another My Sisters’ Place event,” said Pati Holmes. “This organization gives back so much to our beloved Westchester community, and contributing to their mission in any way possible is the least we can do in return.”
