On Sunday, October 2, the Montgomery County Family Justice Center Foundation will hold its 2nd annual benefit at the Hilton Rockville, 1750 Rockville Pike, to support the vital work of the center which -- as part of an international network of more than 60 family-friendly centers -- provides victims of domestic violence and their children essential services all under one roof -- from care to court -- free of charge.
The event, chaired by Catherine Leggett, will honor four award recipients for their support of domestic violence prevention and those in need. In addition, Mrs. Leggett also will announce that the Family Room at the Family Justice Center will be named for the late Judge James Stephen McAuliffe, Jr. as a tribute to his commitment to reducing domestic violence.
