This year, we are delighted to present the 2022 Cecilia Gastón Award to Popular Bank for their longtime support of VIP’s work, and their commitment to supporting our survivor community in achieving economic stability while bringing joy to the lives of women and children impacted by violence.
All proceeds of the benefit directly support VIP’s lifesaving work to end domestic and sexual violence and support survivors and their children.
