SACRAMENTO, CA (MPG) - Community members are invited to the 13th Annual Celebration of Independence Gala that benefits Women’s Empowerment, a local nonprofit helping women who are homeless find homes and jobs so they can support their families. Residents also can sponsor a graduate of the program to attend the event.

The event, which raises funds for the organization and honors the group’s 1,144 graduates, will take place from 5:30-8:30 p.m. on June 26th at the Red Lion Hotel Woodlake in Sacramento. Guests will mingle with graduates from the program and enjoy a formal dinner, silent auction, live auction by Keith McLane of KLM Auctions, live music and presentations from the graduates. For tickets or sponsorships, visit www.womens-empowerment.org.

“Each year this event grows larger as more community members come out to celebrate the amazing women in our community who have broken the cycle of homelessness for themselves and their children,” said Lisa Culp, executive director. “Last year’s event was attended by more guests than ever before and raised record funding to ensure women in our community could support their children. We hope to include even more community members this year. Those who can’t attend can sponsor one of our graduates to have a night where she will shine and be celebrated for her accomplishments.”

Women’s Empowerment offers the most comprehensive job-readiness program in the Sacramento area designed specifically for homeless women and their children. The 2009 Nonprofit of the Year has graduated 1,144 homeless women and their more than 2,500 children.

In 2013, 81 percent of graduates found homes and 90 percent found jobs or enrolled in school or training. The program combines self-esteem courses, job training, health classes and support services to help homeless women across diverse ages, races and cultures. Women’s Empowerment is funded solely through private donations from the community. For more information and to donate online, visit www.womens-empowerment.org.
