8th Annual Breaking the Silence Luncheon
Kristi House and 350 friends and supporters came together for organization’s 8th Annual Breaking the Silence program designed to raise awareness and support for children overcoming sexual abuse and sexual exploitation.
Event Philanthropic Chairs Lourdes Leon-Vega and Dr. Otto Vega laid the foundation for raising an amazing $332,000 in gifts and pledges for services this year, helping to surpass $2 million raised since the program’s inception. Presenting Sponsor Badia Spices underwrote all the costs of the event, enabling 100% of proceeds to go directly to help child-victims.
Guests heard compelling stories of hope and triumph from two young women who each overcame horrific sexual abuse by family members. Both credited their Kristi House social workers and therapists for helping them to heal from the trauma and start them on their journeys to recovery.
