On April 3, 2014, at the Harley-Davidson Museum, the personal injury law firm of Hupy and Abraham sponsored the “11th Annual AWEAR Fashion Show” to benefit the Sojourner Family Peace Center. Proceeds from the event will directly benefit domestic violence victims and help them feel safe again.
Those in attendance participated in a cocktail reception, diamond dig, wine pull and silent auction before the program started. WISN 12’s Mark Baden then welcomed the crowd and assisted with the live auction that took place before the fashion show.
During the program, a woman who received help from Sojourner Family Peace Center in her formative years shared her story with the guests. She talked about how her childhood home was torn apart by domestic violence before Sojourner Family Peace Center helped her and her family rebuild their lives. Today, she has two children and a successful career in nursing.
The fashion show featured some distinguished personalities from the Milwaukee community. WISN 12 news anchors Marianne Lyles and Sally Severson, WTMJ sports anchor Rod Burks and various Sojourner board members were among those that walked the runway to the crowd’s delight.
The Sojourner Family Peace Center is the largest nonprofit provider of domestic violence prevention and intervention services in Wisconsin. Over 9,500 people are touched each year by this organization’s important work.
As a leader in the community, Hupy and Abraham is proud to support an organization that makes Milwaukee a safer place to live. The firm has loyally supported Sojourner Family Peace Center in the past and is happy to help them repair more lives in the future.
