SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The 2019 Pearls of Power Awards Gala was held Friday night to benefit the Rape Crisis Center.
Guests gathered at the American Legion on Bull Street for the festivities. There was food, cocktails, and a silent auction. The gala is the organization’s largest fundraiser of the year.
“So it helps with not charging for counseling services. We don’t have to charge for law enforcement. All of our services are free, so this is in our budget to off set those expenses," said Doris L. Williams, Executive Director, Rape Crisis Center.
The Rape Crisis Center is a local nonprofit that provides resources and education to victims of sexual assault, and their families.
