Great Gatsby Gala: October 21st

Liza Ellen Warner
Nikki L. Hart.

These two young women were victims of domestic violence who died at the hands of their batterers.

Friends and family, and those committed to addressing the issue of domestic violence in our community, are coming together once again to honor their memories and to raise needed funds for services for victim assistance programs as well a memorial fund for the children of the late Nikki Hart.

The Friends and Family of Liza Ellen Warner Association, Inc. will host a Memorial Gala, the Gatsby Gala, on Saturday, October 21st at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy, NY. The event will bring together fashion and guests at what is sure to be a great evening.

Sponsorships are available. For those interested in sponsoring the event, attending, making a donation or volunteering, please contact event organizers at MLHart917@gmail for more information. You can also view the group’s Facebook page to keep up to date.
