Latisha’s House Invites Community to Celebrate 4th Annual Christmas Gala to Rescue & Restore Victims of Sex Trafficking

Make this a holiday to remember. Dance the night away to the Hullabaloo's - a British Invasion band or be one of the lucky ones to bring home a purebred and registered cocker spaniel or toy poodle puppy for that perfect holiday gift for your children or grandchildren.

The Latisha's House 4th Annual Christmas Gala (semi-formal or black tie optional) will be held on December 11, 2016, from at the Doubletree Hotel Ballroom in Kingsmill. Proceeds go towards rescuing and restoring victims of sex trafficking in our community. Enjoy a silent and live auction and bid on items like vacation packages, Redskins vs Giants game, a purple amethyst necklace from Johnstown's Jewelers.

Fine dining will be provided by the Doubletree Hotel-- including the full marketplace spread, chicken, filet mignon, or a vegetarian option all served with complimentary wine and champagne. Sponsored Tables for seating of eight can be purchased for $2,000. Half tables are available for $1,000. Tickets can also be purchased for individuals at $150. A portion of all these sponsorships and tickets are tax deductible.

Tickets can be purchased online at or by checks made payable to Latisha's House Foundation, Inc., P.O. Box 5817, Williamsburg, Virginia 23188. Once your check and/or donation online is received, the tickets will be held at the Doubletree Hotel for you to pick up.

Latisha's House runs the only trauma-informed safe house in Virginia for victims of sex trafficking and offers young women the opportunity to receive counseling, complete high-school or attend college, and become contributing members of society.
