Knock Out Abuse Gala

Terry Barlow (connector extraordinaire) and Wendy Claunch were privileged to be the guests of Shak Hill and the Allstate Foundation at the 19th Annual Knock Out Abuse Gala.  A fabulous event that brought over 700 women together to benefit victims of domestic violence, we were excited to share DASH with several inspiring women including co-founder, Jill Sorenson. Thank you, Shak (www.AllstateAgencies.com/Shak) for your support of DASH and for the invitation to a night we won’t forget!

Check out the great work that Knock Out Abuse www.knockoutabuse.org and the Allstate Foundation www.allstatefoundation.org both do to combat domestic violence.
