Domestic violence survivor shares story during Women's Center event

At it’s recent annual “Hearts of Hope” Breakfast fundraiser, the Women’s Center honored John Royce with the organization’s “Service Above Self” Award.  Royce, the owner of several banquet halls in the Greater Danbury area, was praised for his ongoing commitment to the Women’s Center and his role in creating the organization’s “Men Against Domestic & Sexual Violence” group. The group is comprised of prominent male community leaders whose mission is to raise awareness of the critical domestic and sexual violence services provided by the Women’s Center.  Guest speaker, Lisa Whelan, a Ridgefield kindergarten teacher, shared her personal story of domestic violence, the subsequent outpouring of support she received from friends and family, and her message of hope.
