We've been telling you that last year Walk A Mile in Her Shoes was named Reader's Choice Best Charity Event by Creative Loafing, making it a can't miss experience, and that this year we have some BIG surprises up our sleeve. Now we can share those surprises and hope you will get even more excited about this year's event!

North Carolina's favorite entertainer Buff Faye will be our emcee for the Walk A Mile event! Alongside Buff Faye, former Oakland Raider Usama Young will join us in person to kick off the one mile walk from NoDa Brewing Company. DJ Betty will be back again this year providing the best music to get you pumped up before walking that walk. 

"We've always prioritized supporting causes in our community that are making a difference, and Safe Alliance does just that. They champion domestic violence awareness in Charlotte, which is why we love being part of Walk A Mile. The event creates the perfect opportunity for people from all walks of life to come together, which helps to further spread the message of prevalence and readily available support. Plus, it's a ton of fun watching a bunch of guys walk around in heels!" - Suzie Ford, NoDa Brewing Company
 

Fighting for Women with Fashion

We are excited to announce that tickets are now
available for our annual Fighting for Women with Fashion event! This year's event will raise much-needed funds for Victim Assistance and Legal Representation Program (VA/LRP). The VA/LRP assists victims of domestic violence who seek domestic violence protective orders in court, and is supported by Safe Alliance staff and pro bono attorneys who provide legal representation and court advocacy.

Tickets are $75 until September 22nd and $100 after. Tickets include a lively fashion presntation by Dillard's featuring brave models from both the legal and medical professions, an always-sold-out wine pull, raffle, and a high-stakes silent auction.  

Through a unique collaboration of the Women Lawyers of Charlotte and the Women Physician Section of Mecklenburg County Medical Society, the Fighting For Women With Fashion events have raised more than $240,000.
