The Doula Project has a lot to celebrate this year! Not only have we reached more clients than ever before, we have also reached a new crowd of supporters! Bringing together the arts and activism for one special night,The Doula Project 2013 Benefit on October 3 was filled with performances, art, and music, all in the name of celebrating our clients, donors, and doulas.

Doula Project Founders, Lauren and Mary, kicked off the night's festivities with some highlights of the awesome work the doulas have done over the past 6 years, including reaching over 15,000 pregnant people in the NYC area. This got big cheers from the crowd as all the doulas in the room stood up and raised their hands high. Next came performers Chavisa Woods and The Interior who made profound connections between doula activism and the arts through dramatic readings and modern dancing. DJs Juan and Grant set a romantic mood for the evening with inspired dance music, while Daga+Stan Photography helped create a fun,stylish atmosphere with their cameras. The evening closed with our Silent Auction as supporters walked out with records from Led Er Est, The Weal and Woe, Plow United and The Casualties and art from Caitlin Keegan, Liz Zanis, and Brendan Bliss, to name a few. The Benefit was followed by an intimate after-party at The Panther Room hosted by our friends of Subdivision.

As The Doula Project moves into its seventh year, we feel energized by the support, love, and strength of our donors, allies, and friends. Our goal for this event was to not only raise money for our work, but to celebrate our community, our clients, and our selves.

We can't wait to see you all at the next one! Check out all the event photos at our Facebook page
