Steel Magnolia Gala 2018
Wynona’s House, a 501 (c) 3 not-for-profit organization, exist to ensure that our system effectively works for our youth who have been abused and neglected. Our mission is to promote justice, hope and healing for child victims of abuse and neglect throughout Essex County by coordinating investigations, prosecution, treatment, prevention and supportive services utilizing the “child-centered” multidisciplinary team approach.
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.
On Friday, April 20th, 2018 Wynona’s house will be hosting the Annual Steel Magnolia Gala – Casino Night. Last year’s event was extremely successful, made possible because of sponsors like you. The funds raised helped go towards providing Thanksgiving meals, a newly renovated clothing and food pantry for families, our Family Advocacy Volunteer Initiative, and more. This fun filled night will feature your favorite casino games, raffles, great cocktails and food, live DJ, prizes and more all to help our children not only survive but thrive.
