Center for Women in Transition

The Center for Women in Transition is having their 21st annual "Reach for the Stars" spring fundraiser, Thursday, April 18th at the Holland Doubletree Hotel.

The annual gala provides a significant source of support for the Center for Women in Transition.  Last year alone, the event helped raise over $75,000 for programs and services.  The Center provides both supportive and crisis services to more that 3,000 women, men and children in Ottawa and Allegan counties each year.  In addition, the Center partners throughout the year with local schools k-12, colleges, businesses and other community organizations in domestic violence prevention programming.

Reach for the Stars will have a live and silent auction, cocktail reception, wonderful dinner, and featured speaker, award-winning poet and best-selling memoirist, Mary Karr.  She is the author of Lit, the long-awaited sequel to her critically acclaimed and new York Times bestselling memoirs The Liars' Club and Cherry.
