Liz Quirantes of CBS 12 News will host the evening, which includes cocktails and hors d’oeuvres from Atlantic Avenue’s Cabana el Rey restaurant.
“Domestic abuse crosses all social, economic, sexual orientation, race and cultural lines; and without intervention can result in life-threatening consequences,” said AVDA’s President and CEO, Pam O’Brien. “It is our hope that events like Havana Nights will help raise awareness of the issue, as well as funds for AVDA’s programs and services.
Sponsors of the evening include Steven R. Braten PA, Charles Schwab, Boca Raton Magazine, Delray Magazine, the Pineapple Community Newspaper, Cabana el Ray and Leblon Natural Cane Cachaca Brazil.
“Much like AVDA, our firm's objective is to make the community a better place to live,” stated Steven R. Braten, Managing Attorney at Steven R. Braten, PA. “We are pleased to support AVDA through sponsorship of this great evening, for a worthy cause.”
Proceeds from Havana Nights will directly benefit AVDA’s 24-hour hotline, emergency shelter and Casa Vegso transitional housing facility as well as the outreach, educational and prevention programs offered by AVDA throughout Palm Beach County.
