Shoe auction for DV survivors

The YWCA of Kitsap County will hold a “Take a Walk in Her Shoes” event on Sept. 8 at 5 p.m.

The walk starts at the Amy Burnett Gallery at 408 Pacific Ave., and ends about 300 feet down the street at the Admiral Theatre in Bremerton.

Men and women will take a stand for survivors of domestic abuse and to walk in challenging shoes. A shoe auction will follow the walk, complete with hors d’oeuvres and music. Seattle’s KOMO 4 news anchor Denise Whitaker will emcee the evening.

All money raised will benefit the YWCA Alive Shelter Programs.

The cost is $50 and includes a T-shirt and admission to the shoe auction and reception.

Teams are encouraged to sign up and prizes will be awarded. For more information and registration, go to
