"Working with and coaching these incredibly resilient women has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life,” says Luisa Diaz Brown, Founder, and CEO of Mi Amor Gala. “One of my most treasured moments is when the ladies have told me that for the first time in their lives, they felt beautiful. It touches my heart and makes all of the hard work worthwhile.” Trish Steele, Founder, and CEO of Safe Passage says: "Our women, survivors of domestic violence, are empowered by Luisa's expertise as she equips them with the necessary tools, to provide courage and confidence." This 5th anniversary of Mi Amor Gala will be used to raise funds for survivors of domestic violence and to celebrate their new strength and power made possible by the services provided by Safe Passage.
