An Evening to InspireTuesday night's JF&CS Journey to Safety fundraiser, An Evening to Inspire, was an enormous success! More than 150 friends of Journey to Safety (JTS) gathered together at the Arsenal Center for the Arts in Watertown for a moving and inspirational evening that included music, monologue, and spoken word performances by celebrated artists and performers. JTS raised more than $133,000 to continue to prevent domestic abuse in the Jewish community and help those who have been abused find a path to safety, regardless of their background or beliefs.

The evening was hosted by Diane Hessan, President and CEO of Communispace. Artistic director Kate Clarke brought the diverse group of performers together to create a cohesive and seamless presentation. This poignant and emotional evening reminded us that domestic abuse affects the entire community and that education and empowerment are vital to the prevention of domestic abuse.

Journey to Safety is extremely grateful for all who contributed to making this event a success – from the performers who volunteered their time and energy to the donors and audience members who made the evening such a success. A special thank you to the event committee for their help in making Tuesday night a memorable evening for all involved.
