Host Third Party EventsAt Interval House, we stand for dignity, safety and freedom from domestic violence.
At Interval House, we stand for dignity, safety and freedom from domestic violence. We thank each and every one of your for your support in ending the abuse!
Today, we have a challenge for you. To have a great time hosting an event, raising community awareness and raising funds for Interval House.
We are talking about Third-Party events, where you as an outside party take the intricate to make something happen. This is where you:
- organize an event
- start a fundraising campaign through Email, Facebook or Twitter
- work with a local business for a day to donate a percentage of sales
- coordinate bake sales, to walks, to complex events such as marathons and races.
The parameters are that Interval House accepts no fiduciary responsibility and due to time constraints, we can have little or no staff involvement. We know you understand.
Act now! Put on your event creation cap. The sky is the limit! And here’s a bonus! If you host a Third-Party Event for Interval House, Covert Jazz will provide the live music at no charge! You can’t beat that, and, they are good!
The possibilities are endless. We can’t thank you enough and hope to see you soon!
Some great examples of past Interval House Third-Party Events are:
Freedom From Violence Photography Event, a gallery show and cocktail party in a lovely indoor/outdoor location. Or our 2016 Breakfast with Champions, or our Tee Off with Women Gold Tournament. 1st Annual Stand Up to Domestic Violence Comedy Benefit, City Steam Brew HaHa Comedy Clus, Hartford, hosted by Fox 61’s Joey Furey! All were hugely successful.
People nationally are successfully hosting Third-Party Events to support their local domestic violence programs. You’ll find everything from candlelight vigils to fashion shows and paint parties. Click for ideas!
Freedom From Violence
“Freedom,” the fine art photography exhibition held at the Golden Thread gallery in West Hartford on a balmy August evening in 2016, was an artfully successful example of a Third-Party event!

30 area-based photographers, members of CTPPA (Connecticut Professional Photographers Association), donated their framed prints. 100 percent of all sales and donations went to Interval House, the specific beneficiary under the CCADV (Connecticut Coalition Against Domestic Violence), whom CTPPA supports.
The evening event was opened by Karen Jarmoc, CEO of CCADA and Catherine Bradshaw, then interim Director of Interval House, and a poem was read by survivor Sarah Gallardo who directs “Sarah Speaks Up” and the “Veterans For Victims” program.
Deb Key, an accomplished Avon photographer and member of CTPPA, conceived the concept as a creative way to celebrate the “power of the print,” to raise both awareness and funds for victims of Domestic Violence so to rebuild their lives with freedom from fear.
“Support for the exhibition exceeded our expectations,” Key said. “As you enjoy these original interpretations of ‘Freedom,’ know you are helping to make a difference for people starting over.”
Becker’s Catering provided appetizers and desserts for the event and Ninety + Cellars served a tasting of wines and beers. Live acoustic music by Doug Maher made the event even more harmonious.
Photo art was also contributed by renowned speakers who presented at CTPPA educational events within the past 18 months. Fine printing services were donated by Alkit and Bay Photo.
