The 20th anniversary of the Gala, held at the Ritz-Carlton Washington, DC on Nov. 14, raised over $560,000 to benefit victims of domestic violence. Washington’s most stunning ladies donned Great Gatsby finery in keeping with this year’s theme. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), firmly committed to keeping women and families safe, was the keynote speaker. CNN’s Wolf Blitzer was live auctioneer with a surprise performance by Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Eric Benet, who garnered $31,000 to perform for a ladies luncheon. Cheryl Masri and Jill Sorensen founded KOA to raise awareness and provide protection for victims of domestic abuse.
