180 Turning Lives Around held their annual fundraising event this year themed, “HavAnna Nights” in special recognition of event honoree, Anna Diaz-White, the 35 year Executive Director who is Cuban American. Funds raised will support 180’s domestic violence and sexual assault programs including 180’s Monmouth County based Safe House – an emergency shelter and safe haven for families fleeing abuse. Thanks to the philanthropy of more than 260 guests, nearly $300,000 was raised. Major sponsors of the event included: Rick and Ana Blank, Crum & Forster, The Hirar and Anna Hovnanian Foundation and Sahakian Family, New Jersey Natural Gas and the lead, Presenting Sponsor, Verizon. The fabulous Bobby Bandiera Band set the stage for an evening to remember, while the De Tierre Caliente Band added a flair of Latin inspired music during the cocktail hour under twinkling string lights at the beautiful Riverhouse, Rumson Country Club.
“When a victim in Monmouth County needs help, 180 is there in a moment’s notice to support them in their darkest hour. Sexual assault and domestic violence survivors can contact 180 anytime – we are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week with our hotlines, counseling, support and advocacy. 180 can be found throughout our community – in all 5 area hospital emergency rooms and all 53 police departments. We respond with care and compassion to rape survivors, and so many other victims of abuse—including domestic violence, child abuse and human trafficking.” Anna Diaz-White, Executive Director, 180 Turning Lives Around. “We are grateful for the support of our caring community and to those who sponsored our Annual Celebration. The event provides critical funds and helps to raise awareness of our mission.”
180 appreciates all donors, guests and sponsors who participated in the event. With funds raised, 180 can operate many programs which help save and change lives of countless Monmouth County residents. These programs include: 24-hour Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Hotlines, the rape care program, sexual violence counseling and court advocacy at the Family Justice Center and school outreach related to safe dates and healthy relationships as well as 180’s teen helpline based, the 2ND Floor Youth Text and Helpline.

“It was time for the band to select this year’s beneficiary and everything about 180’s mission resonated with us. After learning what my daughter and her friends did for the women staying at 180’s shelter, we felt compelled to do our part and help raise some money to help 180 deliver services to individuals in crisis due to domestic and sexual violence. 180 also runs a teen support text and helpline called, “2NDFLOOR” which is so important and needed in these times. We are excited to perform and do what we can for such a worthy cause.” said Steve Kaiman.
