No More Tears Hosts Fundraiser Celebrating Domestic Violence Survivors

One in three women and one in seven men will experience domestic violence in their lifetime.

To strengthen its mission of offering holistic services to support domestic violence victims and help them become survivors, No More Tears, a local nonprofit organization, is hosting a celebration of survivors fundraiser. In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, the organization will host the event from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Oct. 19 at the La Fuga at the Shorebreak Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. The event aims to help survivors get back on their feet and live a life free of violence.

“Domestic violence doesn’t discriminate — it impacts people no matter their wealth, religion, education, race, gender identity or sexual orientation,” Somy Ali says, the Founder and president of No More Tears and a survivor herself. “I’m proud that since we were founded 15 years ago, we have helped more than 42,000 people in domestic violence and human trafficking situations.”

Attendees of the fundraiser hosted by No More Tears will be treated to two drink tickets and delectable passed bites. This event celebrates and supports domestic violence survivors and allows guests to enjoy the serene ambiance of the La Fuga at the Shorebreak Hotel in Fort Lauderdale. In addition to that, the attendees can participate in an exciting raffle and meet long-time volunteers and strong survivors whom No More Tears have helped. The nonprofit will also share news of upcoming events and volunteer opportunities for the holiday season.

With No More Tears being an entirely volunteer-run nonprofit, guests can be assured that the funds generated from their event ticket, as well as raffle entries, will be utilized directly for paying legal representation, therapy, doctor appointments, rental assistance, groceries and other necessities that are needed to start a new life free of domestic violence.

The event has received generous support from local businesses who have donated raffle items. These businesses include Temple Street Eatery, La Mexicana, Rebel Wine Bar, Autumn Markley Hair Salon, Float8, 4 Weeks 2 the Beach, Dr. Steiger, Skincare by Adriana G, Steiger Facial Plastic Surgery, and more.

Interested guests can purchase tickets on Eventbrite.

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
