Steel Magnolia Gala 2017
The Steel Magnolia Gala is an annual fundraising event benefiting Wynona’s House —The Essex County Child Advocacy Center. Featuring cocktails, dinner, dancing and Live and Silent Auctions, this year’s event is scheduled for April 26th, 2017. Last year, due to the generosity of business communities and private foundations such as yours, who believed and supported our mission to promote justice and healing for victims of child abuse and neglect we raised $70,000. This year we seek to match, if not surpass this fundraising goal.
The “Steel Magnolia" pays tribute to our namesake and legislative champion, the late Senator Wynona M. Lipman. Senator Lipman was the first African American woman in the New Jersey State Legislature and the longest serving member at the time of her death in 1999, with 28 years of service advocating for women and children.
