Being Brave: An Evening Honoring Survivors featured live music by renowned artists, empowering spoken-word moments by NJ notables, #TheManStand against domestic violence, the premiere performance of a new comic book, and a showcase of inspirational art, all while celebrating NJ heroes. Honorees include: Tony Award-winning entertainer Melba Moore, United Methodist Church of New Brunswick, Safe + Sound Somerset, and Gisela Ciancia, Roosevelt School Principal, New Brunswick. Hosted by Bert Baron, a NJ Broadcasters Association Radio Hall-of-Famer, this third-annual benefit helped Town Clock Community Development Corporation, a New Brunswick-based nonprofit, provide permanent, affordable, safe housing and supportive services for survivors of domestic violence and their children. This year's theme—Spreading Our Wings—represents both the empowerment of survivors who are rebuilding their lives, as well as the expansion of Town Clock CDC. Being Brave was a memorable and uplifting evening that enabled you to change the lives of local domestic abuse survivors.
