You can also write a special message of support to survivors in our community.

Healing & Hope Luncheon, October 19th, Sweetwater Country Club – tickets start at $100

Former star of Bravo TV series ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ and domestic violence survivor, Taylor Armstrong will be the special guest at this event benefiting Fort Bend Women’s Center.

Behind the glamorous façade of ‘The Real Housewives’, Armstrong hid a dark secret: her husband, Russell, had been abusing her for years in every possible way. Following the familiar pattern of many domestic violence survivors before her, Armstrong had also witnessed domestic violence in her home as a young child – the abuse of her mother at the hands of her father. Thankfully, she was able to break the cycle of violence. After putting up with Russell’s abuse for six years, she found the courage to leave. Tragically, soon after Russell took his own life.

Individual tickets start at $100.

VIP tickets including an exclusive pre-lunch reception with Taylor are available at $150

Limited table sponsorships are still available.
