Passaic County Women’s Center celebrated their 30th anniversary Thursday night with their Purple Ball at The Venetian in Garfield. The masquerade-themed event, which benefits the organization’s shelter that serves battered women and their children, featured dinner, an open bar, and silent auction. They not only celebrated decades of serving survivors, but also raised awareness for sexual assault and domestic violence.
