ASHA Gala 2017

Saturday, June 10, 2017
From 6 PM to 10 PM (EST)
Dewberry Hall, Johnson Center, George Mason University, Fairfax VA 22030

 

ASHA for Women’s Gala 2017 celebrates the power of community to adapt, change and succeed even when faced with challenges. The tradition of support, from informal to institutional, has been a huge contributory factor. ASHA for Women is deeply conscious of its lineage, of clear-thinking women who, while deeply rooted in society and in tradition, struck out in 1987 to bring hope and deliverance to distressed women and children.

 

The Gala message: Together, we rock. Together, we can hope for better days of peace in homes, harmony in society. Let’s renew our support, our philanthropy.
