The YWCA Darien/Norwalk Red Carpet Ball fundraiser held Saturday, March 26, was attended by nearly 200 guests who enjoyed dinner, dancing and a silent and live auction.

Proceeds from The Red Carpet Ball will benefit the YWCA Darien/Norwalk's programs for women and children in lower Fairfield County. These include YWCA Parent Awareness with lectures to provide support and guidance to parents in our local community; New Directions, a program providing women with support and tools needed to find employment with the ultimate goal of economic self-sufficiency; and Better Beginnings, the only free bilingual prenatal education program in lower Fairfield County.

Sponsors of the Red Carpet Ball included the Darien News, Darien Rowayton Bank, Women's Health of Fairfield County, In-Site Communications and Mariella Cuccolo of Allstate Insurance.
