Y Women Rooftop Soiree 2017 – Photo Gallery

Last night we were delighted to share the evening with a wonderful group of YWCA friends who joined together in support of Our Sister’s Closet at our annual Y Women Rooftop Soiree.

This annual, August event entertained attendees with a beautiful fashion show,  showcasing outfits and accessories donated to Our Sister’s Closet. We are so thankful to each of our sassy models, and hair and make-up artists, who graciously volunteered their time to create an entertaining show for all to enjoy!

We would also like to thank Borracho for providing a delicious taco bar, and to our volunteer bartender from the Manito Tap House for making us all delicious mojitos. Abe Kenney did an amazing job creating beautiful ambiance with his lovely live music, thank you Abe! The evening would not have been a success without their support!

Announcement Of Our Remodel

The evening was made extra special due to the exciting announcement about our campaign launch to remodel Our Sister’s Closet, YWCA’s donation-based, free clothing boutique for women.  Teresa Dixon, Our Sister’s Closet Manager, along with dedicated support from Marci Schreiber of ZBA Architects, has been working to identify partners who want to join together to accomplish this goal by the end of 2018.

Partners like Walker Construction and Spokane Community College have already been instrumental in moving our dream forward. If you are interested in helping us make this dream a reality, please contact Teresa Dixon at connect@ywcaspokane.org. Thank you!

Letters From Survivors

Every journey through and out of domestic violence is extremely hard. Some people do not survive. Some are left with lasting scars, physically and emotionally. Families…
