Zonta Club of Charleston hosts 5th Breaking the Silence Awards Gala

With domestic violence being at the forefront of media coverage and government action (S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley just announced last Thursday the creation of a domestic violence task force), the Zonta Club of Charleston’s Breaking the Silence Awards Gala couldn’t come at a better time. The fifth annual event will honor and recognize individuals making a difference in the lives of domestic violence victims, including Patricia Warner Kurent, director of the Tri-County Domestic Violence Coordinating Council; Brenda Edmond of Joint Base Charleston; Levolia Rhodes of the Goose Creek Police Department; Lisa Bullard of the city of North Charleston; and Christan Rainey of Real MAD. The gala, which will feature a keynote address by Post and Courier reporter Doug Pardue, a member of the team that produced the five-part series “Till Death Do Us Part,” will include a wine reception and dinner. The dress is cocktail attire.

When: 6-9:30 p.m. Saturday

Where: The Harbour Club, 35 Prioleau St.

Price: $75
