Our annual Women for Courage luncheon is an opportunity to hear about the mission and initiatives of the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage, as well to learn the characteristics and warning signs of intimate partner violence. Many don't realize that one in four women will be a victim of intimate partner violence in their lifetime. Intimate partner violence knows no boundaries. Victims work, live and play in our community and may not realize they are in living in a dangerous situation if they choose to stay in the toxic relationship. It is our goal to raise funds and friends with this event to support prevention, education, awareness and research initiatives. We pledge to help youth and young adults understand how to build healthy relationships and recognize warning signs of abuse in their own emerging relationships, and those of their friends and family. 

This year's keynote speaker is Esta Soler, the President and Founder of Futures Without Violence. For Sponsorship information, please contact Sherill Carrington or Terri DeBoo. If you would like Table Host information, please contact Durenda Bartholomy.  We hope you will join us on April 11, 2019 at the Charlotte Convention Center Crown Ballroom.  Don't wait, this event fills-up quickly.  


The response to our fourth annual Women for Courage luncheon on April 19, 2018 was an overwhelming success, and we thank you.  We hope you will continue to keep intimate partner awareness at the forefront and remember that 1 in 4 women will become a victim in her lifetime.  The proceeds from this event will allow the Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage to continue to support agencies and institutions who focus on domestic violence prevention, education, awareness, and research. Let's save lives together!

We'd like to share with you many of the wonderful moments captured by our photographers: Media Arts Collective and Daniel Coston Photography.  You can view all of the 2018 Luncheon event photos on our facebook page.
