An Evening in Tuscany 2023 Event Recap

A record-breaking event Because Of Friends Like YOU!

Together we raised a net of over $160,000 at An Evening In Tuscany 2023

After a night of laughter and music, we are left filled with gratitude and awe for the support that was shown at An Evening in Tuscany 2023. The generosity and compassion shown on Friday night will make safety, healing, and hope possible for so many. We are so grateful for the incredible support from everyone who attended.

We are overjoyed and humbled to share that we not only met our goal of $145,000 raised but surpassed it! On Friday night, you raised over $160,000 for survivors of domestic violence. That is a record-breaking number!

The funds raised at An Evening in Tuscany ensure that individuals and their children experiencing the hardships of domestic violence have someone to walk alongside them, even in their darkest moments.

An Evening in Tuscany brought the warmth and vibrancy of the Tuscan countryside to the heart of Spokane, immersing guests in an atmosphere of warmth, elegance, and community. The event featured Tuscan-themed cuisine, wine from Barrister Winery, and performances by local musicians. Guests mingled, danced, and bid on exclusive auction items, all while knowing their contributions would directly support YWCA Spokane’s mission.

We are so grateful to everyone who helped YWCA Spokane reach its goal for this year’s Tuscan-themed fundraiser. With the incredible help of many friends and supporters, you came together to ensure peace, justice, freedom, and dignity for all. A heartfelt thanks goes out to all who were involved in making this event so special!
