Community of Conscience Breakfast

May 17, 2016

Our premier event of the year, Casa Myrna’s seventh annual Community of Conscience Breakfast took place on Tuesday, May 17, 2016, at Boston’s Revere Hotel from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM. This year we celebrated strength: the strength of survivors, our advocates, and the growing movement to end domestic and dating violence in greater Boston and beyond. The event was hosted by Reverend Liz Walker and featured remarks by a survivor speaker from Casa Myrna’s Teen Parenting Program and by our keynote speaker Josh Kraft of Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston and the New England Patriots Charitable Foundation.

Thank you to our sponsors for their support!

Community of Conscience Breakfast

May 20, 2015

We held our sixth annual Community of Conscience Breakfast on May 20, 2015 at the Wyndham Boston/Beacon Hill, raising $115,475 and welcoming nearly 250 guests. The generosity of our sponsors, advertisers, and all who attended helped set a fundraising record for Casa Myrna. We are particularly grateful to our lead sponsors, Verizon HopeLine and United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley. A huge thanks to Laura and Eric Peterson for matching all gifts made at the breakfast up to $12,000. Reverend Liz Walker was an outstanding emcee. Survivor Nadine Walker Mooney, Lieutenant Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts Karyn Polito, Boston Police Commissioner William Evans and Boston City Councilor Ayanna Pressley all gave inspiring remarks on the theme of “celebrating progress.” We presented the Norman Knight Charitable Foundation Leadership Award to Megan Gates, immediate past president of the Casa Myrna Board, and the Myrna Vazquez Advocacy Award to Councilor Pressley.

We believe that every relationship should be safe and healthy. What do you believe?
