Portland, OR. Guests at the Bradley Angle GlamHer benefit embraced the 1920’s theme and brought the party to life at The Nines with an abundance of sequins, feathers, and bow ties. Staff members were happy to report they had raised $125,000 to support survivors of domestic violence. Poison Waters and friends went all out for the night’s entertainment at the May 11th benefit and kicked off the After-Party while DJ Deena Bee mixes filled the dance floor. Organizers reported, “We are confident that this year’s gala was Bradley Angle’s most fun event EVER and we can’t wait to up the ante even more next year!” (Photo credit, Andie Petkus)

From Bradley Angle:
Bradley Angle’s mission is to serve all people affected by domestic violence. We do this by placing people experiencing—or at risk of—domestic violence at the center of our services and providing them with safety, education, empowerment, healing, and hope.
Bradley Angle embraces the following values in all that we do:
We believe that everyone has a right to live free from violence and abuse.
We value the dignity and personal story of everyone who comes to us for support.
We believe that survivors of domestic violence should be treated respectfully and have control over their own lives.
Our services are inclusive and accessible to survivors of diverse cultures, backgrounds, and experiences.
Our services build on the strength and resilience of survivors.
We work collaboratively whenever and wherever possible.
We involve the community in our work because we know that domestic violence doesn’t just impact individuals and families—it affects every one of us.
We acknowledge current and historical inequities and work towards ending oppression.
Bradley Angle is constantly learning and evolving as we strive to end to domestic violence.
