Rose of Sharon thanks the Official Pro Players for partnering with us in presenting our 3rd annual Living Behind the Mask Masquerade Gala in the fight to ending domestic violence and sex trafficking. 

Stay tuned for October 27, 2019 for the 4th Annual

ABOUT THE GALA

The purpose for the Living Behind the Mask Masquerade Gala is to not only bring awareness, educate, empower, and encourage women that are currently ex-periencing any life changing events due to the epidemic of domestic violence. Yet, it is also to raise money for one of our first housing project that will provide a place for women to go and grow.

The theme of this year’s gala symbolizes the empowerment of women removing the mask that they carefully hide behind and use their voice to empower others to remove the mask of domestic violence. This event took place on Sunday, October 28, 2018 at downtown Atlanta City Hall in Atlanta, GA

The purpose of the pioneer circle is to shine a spotlight on the accomplishments of successful surviving over comers and the work that they do throughout Georgia and beyond. With this annual event we hope to encourage the next generation of survivors to stand up and be a voice for the voiceless by sharing their success stories and reaching back to help another to find their voice as well.
