Mardi Gras Gala


saturday, March 6, 2021!                 

For the last 25+ years proceeds from our Mardi Gras Gala have directly impacted victims of crime and trauma in Summit County. The strong support of generous donors like you, allow our advocates to provide 24-hour crime scene response, crisis intervention, and advocacy to over 6,000 victims a year.


On Saturday, March 7, 2020 over 400 guests came together to turn The Tangier in Akron into a night out on Bourbon Street to help us reach our fundraising goal of $130,000!
