TWC Fall Benefit: A Fun Evening for a Good Cause


This past weekend, many of us at Criterion participated in The Women’s Center online Fall Benefit. The event, which replaced the organizations traditional annual Gala, offered three different online musical acts and many stories of resilience from TWC clients.  The Gala met its fundraising goal, thanks to sponsors like Criterion and many individual donations. The demand for the mental health services TWC offers to women and families continues to increase during these difficult times. You can always make a donation here.

Criterion attendee John Pross wrote, “Hearing stories of support, success and individual growth remind me of that importance and underscores the necessity of the call to action. We are all called to care for one another and know that we can do so in response to this call.  My favorite part of the evening was responding to the call to action and knowing that doing so directly helps women in need.”

Here are some photos and reactions from Criterion’s invitees:
