The Ray of Hope Initiative is an annual event whose goals are to shed light on the issues of violence against women, celebrate the strength of victims and survivors globally, and continue to advocate for communities affected by such violence. This year's Benefit Concert will feature an array of musicians, artists, and other different types of performers. The purpose of the Benefit Concert is to raise both funds and public awareness to address the violence that affects more than 25 million American women.
MADRE, an International Women's Human Rights Organization, focuses on advancing women's human rights by meeting urgent needs in communities and building lasting solutions. They partner with community-based women's organizations worldwide to address issues of health and reproductive rights, economic development, education and other human rights.
Eat Cake NYC, is designed to acknowledge women all over the world on taking the lead, taking initiative and doing it all on their own terms. Through women empowerment, the goal is to encourage and motivate all women to strive towards the next level. As a result, Eat Cake's motto is "Much Success and Prosperity unto you."
