New Beginnings Luncheon

An afternoon bringing advocates together


After hosting Party in the Park for the past two years, AVDA has made the decision to pivot to a new, springtime event that ensure more survivors can access AVDA’s services. We are grateful to everyone who contributed to and attended Party in the Park, and look forward to bringing you an inspiring, uplifting opportunity to gather with likeminded advocates who stand with survivors.

Join AVDA for the first annual New Beginnings Luncheon on May 8, 2023 at the Junior League of Houston. Chaired by Sarah Barrett, Rachel Delaney, Jessica Leeke, and Alexis Smith, and honoring longtime advocate Stephanie von Stein Schusterman, this celebration of survivors of domestic abuse will take place from 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM. Guests will enjoy an elevated lunch, curated silent auction, empowering keynote speaker, and more. Underwriting levels range from $3,000 to $15,000 with tickets beginning at $150 for young professionals under age 35.
