Cheers for Choice: Holiday Party Success

DCAF and friends celebrated a fantastic 2015 at our 11th annual holiday party on December 7 at Capitale. This year, we provided more than $135,000 in small grants to help women seeking abortion care, and that’s something to celebrate. To cap it off, we raised about $15,000 at this year’s holiday party — a great way to welcome 2016.

DCAF is entirely volunteer-run.  But some of our volunteers go above and beyond the usual above-and-beyond. We honored these incredible volunteers for their truly outstanding work:

Volunteer of the Year: Jenn R.

Rookie of the Year: Dee S.

Honorable Volunteers: Lisa W. and Sarah W.

Case Managers of the Year: Arona K. and Liz R.
