Atlanta, Georgia – June 2, 2017 – ProviDyn®, a provider of IT support, strategy and services for small and medium-sized businesses and nonprofits, today announced it was a Patron-level sponsor for the Hearts with Hope Gala, the largest annual fundraising event for the Partnership Against Domestic Violence (PADV). ProviDyn also donated personnel resources and computer systems to support event registration and auction checkout processes for the gala, held May 20, 2017 at the Ritz Carlton Buckhead in Atlanta.
"Working with PADV to provide IT service and support for their operation has given ProviDyn leadership insight into the valuable role the agency plays in stemming the destructive cycle of domestic violence and abuse," said ProviDyn CEO Hamish Davidson. "We enthusiastically support PADV’s mission, and we are honored to count the agency and its Hearts with Hope Gala among the charitable causes ProviDyn supports in our community."
Each year PADV’s Hearts with Hope Gala is not only a key fundraiser for an important mission; it is also a celebration of the many successes achieved by its clients—victims of domestic violence. Hearts with Hope is an elegant event featuring a sociable cocktail hour, fabulous dining, live music and an exciting auction where attendees bid to win prized items and support the charity.
For this year’s gala, PADV set an ambitious goal—to nearly double the funds traditionally raised by the event from close to a half-million dollars to nearly one million. The monies raised by the yearly celebration support PADV's general operating expenses, allowing the agency to further its extensive domestic violence prevention efforts.
Partnership Against Domestic Violence (PADV) has provided professional, compassionate and empowering support to battered women and their children for more than 40 years. The organization is the largest nonprofit domestic violence organization in Georgia and its mission is to end the crime of intimate partner violence and empower its survivors. PADV tirelessly pursues this mission through offering each of its programs and services free of charge to those in need. Additionally, the nonprofit hosts several impactful events each year to educate different audiences on various domestic violence-related issues. These events include the Teen Summit, the Domestic Violence in the Workplace Conference and the Men’s Leadership Breakfast. For more information, please visit www.PADV.org.
