Denim & Diamonds, a new event to support victims of domestic violence and the services provided by the Domestic Violence Crisis Center, will take place Saturday, Oct. 19, at Hotel Zero Degrees in Norwalk.

"We are so excited to bring this new event to the community," Laura Campbell, director of development for the DVCC, said in a release. "To have Hotel Zero Degrees and other local vendors partnering with us is phenomenal, and we are getting wonderful support from corporations and area businesses. Get together with your friends and join us because it's going to be a really fun night for an excellent cause."

The event will feature sustainable food stations with wine pairings, an open bar and dancing to music by Kunjan Collective. Dress for the evening is "denim & diamonds" (casual chic).

The DVCC provides legal, counseling, housing and economic empowerment services to nearly 4,000 individuals impacted by domestic violence each year and is the only domestic violence agency serving the communities of Stamford, Norwalk, Westport, New Canaan, Darien, Wilton and Weston. PeaceWorks, the violence prevention platform of DVCC, reaches between 20,000 and 30,000 young people every year through in-school, after-school and teen programs.

The event coincides with National Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, during which activities and programs across the country focus on increasing awareness about domestic violence and available services.
