About Our Organization

"With the help of Knock Out Abuse thousands of women and their children can live a life free of violence and full of promise..."

The families of Crossway Community thank you.

Knock Out Abuse Against Women is a Washington, D.C. based organization that for the past 24 years has promoted awareness and raised money to combat domestic abuse. Since 1993, Knock Out Abuse Against Women has raised over $9 million dollars to aid victims of domestic violence through our support of shelters for women and children whose lives have been shattered by abuse, poverty and homelessness.

The bulk of the fundraising for Knock Out Abuse is done through its annual gala event that includes a charity auction and a night of spectacular entertainment. The event is a very special evening, unlike any other in Washington, where over 600 committed and influential citizens come together. Our annual gala has earned the reputation as "the hottest ticket in town" and sells out each year.

Knock Out Abuse Against Women has an extensive reach within the Washington, D.C. community, and nationally through its corporate, retail and philanthropic relationships. We are not afraid to open the dialogue about the important issue of domestic abuse, and we continue to find creative ways to both raise money for this issue as well as promote awareness.
