New: April 29, 1:56 p.m.
LifeWire, the state’s largest domestic violence service provider, will host its 2014 benefit gala and auction May 3.
The funds from the World of Hope Gala and Auction will allow LifeWire to provide services in east and north King County to people, primarily women and children, who have experienced physical, emotional or sexual abuse.
The money collected also assists the organization in preventing domestic violence through advocacy, education and support.
The event begins at 5 p.m. with a wine reception and silent auction, followed by a 7 p.m. live auction and dinner led by emcee Molly Shen, a news anchor at KOMO-TV.
LifeWire, formerly the Eastside Domestic Violence Program, has provided support to more than 122,000 victims and their children since its inception 32 years ago.
The organization operates a 24-hour helpline, 746-1940, for those seeking assistance. It also offers housing, prevention and counseling services.
