Last Wednesday I volunteered at CrisisLink's Link up and Listen Gala, held at the Clarendon Ballroom. I found out about this great organization and volunteer opportunity through the Little Black Dress Club.
CrisisLink saves lives and prevents tragedies. They give vital support to those facing life crises, trauma and suicide, and provide information, education and links to community resources to empower people to help themselves.
The Little Black Dress Club is a community of interesting and adventurous women who enjoy a variety of activities. The members host events from casual happy hours and gourmet dinners to rock climbing and SCUBA diving. Their mission is to create a worldwide community so as women move or travel, there will always be a friend to share an occasion.
The other volunteers and I acted as Auction Guards. We helped with the silent auction and helped the Gala-goers with any questions they had about the auction items. Over $50,000 was raised at the event!
