Advocates Attend Artist Against Abuse Gala in Bridgehampton, New York on June 22, 2012
Everyone enjoyed a night of celebrating, bidding and entertainment as this year's 18th annual Artist Against Abuse benefit goes 60s! The festive evening was filled with live and silent auctions, incredible works of art, games of chance and dancing to the sounds of The Fabulous Sixties Rock Show. With the generosity of the community, this event has raised close to $2,000,000 helping to make a lifelong impact to more than 15,000 families!
 
The Retreat is a safe haven for families in crisis. They provide numerous services to protect victims, provide safety and help them get back on their feet and live productive lives.
Domestic violence is abusive behavior- emotional, psychological, physical, or sexual-that one person in an intimate relationship uses in order to control the other.  It takes many different forms and includes behaviors such as threats, name-calling, preventing contact with family or friends, withholding money, actual or threatened physical harm and sexual assault.  Stalking can also be a form of domestic violence.
 
 
Most domestic violence is committed against women by their male partners or ex-partners.  It also occurs in lesbian and gay relationships and is common in teenage dating relationships.  In a small number of cases, men are abused by female partners.  Every victim of domestic violence, whether female or male, gay or heterosexual, has the right to safety and legal relief.
