Strawberries, Chocolate and Champagne

This Friday is the “Strawberries, Chocolate and Champagne Evening” fundraising event for the YWCA ALIVE programs.

The event is being held at the Silverdale Beach Hotel from 6 to 10 p.m. All proceeds directly benefit the ALIVE programs, which provide temporary emergency housing, transitional house and a wide range of other services for survivors of domestic violence and their children. According to YWCA numbers,  more than 6,000 people access these programs annually.

Beyond bringing people together to support the YWCA and of course enjoy some delicious Champagne with strawberries and chocolate, the event will serve to honor three local organizations: Soroptomist International Clubs of Port Orchard, Bremerton, and North Kitsap and Housing Kitsap (formerly KCCHA) and the Kitsap Credit Union.

According to the release from the YWCA, the organizations are being honored because: “The YWCA has built longstanding partnerships with these organizations in providing supportive services for families affected by domestic violence.” 

The evening includes a buffet, music, dancing, a jazz performance by Eugenie Jones, a raffle and of course: “Strawberries, Chocolate, and Champagne”.  Tickets are currently on sale. Contact the YWCA to RSVP or for additional information at (360) 479-0522 or info@ywcakitsap.org.
