An Evening In Tuscany July 28, 2023

Beacon Hill Events
Italian Dinner and Auction Benefit For YWCA Spokane

An Evening In Tuscany is a beautiful Tuscan inspired event benefiting YWCA Spokane’s safe shelter and other programs and services for domestic violence survivors in Spokane.


Guests can enjoy a fabulous scratch made Italian dinner prepared by local signature Chef Ellie Aaro with Beacon Hill Events and indulge in treats that will make you feel like you were in Tuscany!


Spokane is full of talented artists and entertainers. This fundraiser will provide participants with creative ways to give including a silent and live auction focused on local arts, artists, and entertainment.


All proceeds from this Tuscan benefit will support the women, children, and programs at YWCA Spokane, including our domestic violence safe shelter, which is open 24hrs a day 365 days a year.

Join us and make a difference as we gather for a common goal of supporting the peace, justice, freedom, and dignity of the women and children served through YWCA Spokane’s programs for survivors of domestic violence.
