HAVEN’S Blossom Gala

HAVEN is Oakland County’s only agency offering comprehensive services for survivors of intimate partner violence and sexual assault. HAVEN provides emergency shelter, 24/7 crisis line, counseling, advocacy, forensic exams, community resources and educational programming to over 30,000 individuals each year. The non-profit held its Annual Blossom Gala at the Royal Oak Farmers Market to a crowd of nearly 400. Attendees were inspired by personal stories that were shared from a survivor. Thanks to the generosity of sponsors and guests, the event raised $340,000.
