Women's and Children's Alliance Centennial 

Friday, Sept. 9 at the Boise Centre

On Friday Sept. 9, don your mildly swanky cocktail casual attire and join the Women's and Children's Alliance for its Centennial Celebration.

The party promises to be a unique remembrance of the WCA's 100 years providing support for women in the community.

In 1910, the WCA--then the Young Women's Christian Association--was founded as a safe place for women to live on their own. Over the years, the organization has evolved into a refuge and advocacy arm for victims of domestic abuse.

In 2010, the WCA provided more than 9,800 safe bed nights to 88 women and 130 children.

The festivities at the centennial will include a cocktail hour accompanied by mellow jazz from the Arts West Jazz Combo, a four-course dinner and a silent auction with items ranging from college football tickets to art and jewelry.

Following dinner, more entertainment kicks in, featuring Idaho native Emily Braden backed up by the Blue Door Trio.

Finally a live auction will get going, which includes a trip to Chicago complete with a Notre Dame game, a VIP Vandal football weekend and a private, locally sourced Valentine's beer dinner for eight featuring food by Teresa Yragui.

All proceeds will benefit the WCA's Endowment Fund.
