Sounds of Silence Gala (CAWC)
The Sounds of Silence Gala for Connections for Abused Women and their Children (CAWC) is CAWC's #1 fundraiser. This year they raise $281K, a 28.9% increase from last year.
As a Junior Board member I was introduced to the CAWC leadership and was given access to CAWC's social media accounts- Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. I even donated a few dollars to boost presence because they didn't even think about making a facebook page. Alongside taking over their accounts, I offered free social media consultation including developing a hashtag and standardizing all of their social media handles.
During the Gala I was also responsible for streaming the speakers. It was a huge success!
