The Boston Area Rape Crisis Center’s 2011 Champions for Change Gala and Auction

The Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that is dedicated to ending sexual violence through healing and social change. 

BARCC provides comprehensive, FREE services, which include counseling, legal advocacy, case management, a 24-hour hotline, a medical accompaniment program, and community outreach and education to victims of rape and their family members, as well communities in the greater Boston area. We are the oldest independent rape crisis center in the state, and the second-oldest in the nation.

On Thursday, November 17th,  2011 BARCC will celebrate its 2011 Champions for Change Gala and Auction. This is an inspiring evening that brings together over 400 of BARCC’s most loyal supporters, for three important reasons:

-          To celebrate individuals who have made a significant contribution to the fight against sexual violence;
-          To honor BARCC’s 140 program volunteers, who make up the backbone of BARCC’s services; and
-          To raise much-needed funds so that BARCC can continue to provide its services at absolutely no cost to those who access them.

The evening will feature fine food & drink and silent & live auctions to raise money for BARCC’s free services. BARCC will also present annual awards to our 2011 Champion for Change, Chico Colvard for his award-winning film Family Affair, and to BARCC’s extraordinary volunteers. Cocktail hour and silent auction will begin at 6:00 pm.
