How You Can Help


There are many ways to get involved with the event, all of which are simple.


Buy a ticket and attend

Just by attending the event, you’re helping the Center with your ticket purchase. Each ticket provides a sizable donation to the Center and helps keep our doors open to the community, providing a safe haven and meeting-place in the heart of New Haven.

Become an event volunteer

We’re always in need of additional volunteers who can help both before and during the event. If you are interested in volunteering for this or other Center events, contact us and we’ll put you on our volunteer list to remind you!

Purchase an ad

Individuals and businesses alike can purchase an ad that will go into the Dorothy Awards program. Use the PayPal form below to get started; once you’ve paid for your ad we will contact you to get your ad creative. Or, you can mail in your ad and payment using the 2017 Support Letter.

Donate to the silent auction

We receive donations from businesses and individuals alike, and are always interested in new and unique items for our silent auction.

Become a sponsor

Each year the Center has a generous number of sponsors who help financially support the event. For more information on becoming a sponsor, see our 2017 Support Letter.
