“We’re excited to throw a party to support such a fantastic cause,” said Tonya Scholz, president of the AWC. “The Lodge  fills a critical need in Miami-Dade for safe, confidential services for victims of domestic violence and rape. So the AWC, as the oldest professional organization dedicated to the advancement of women, applauds The Lodge’s invaluable work. We’re delighted to contribute towards its operations.”

“As we prepare our families for the holidays, it’s more important than ever to remember women and their families who need shelter from domestic and sexual abuse. That’s why the Miami-Dade County Commission for Women, an advisory board to the Miami-Dade County Commissioners, is partnering with the Association for Women in Communications to raise funds and awareness for The Lodge, a vital resource for those victims,” commented Carmen Elias-Levenson, chairperson of the CFW. “Together, and with participation from the Miami-Dade community, we can help a great organization continue to provide support and help to those who need it most.”
