Friday, October 8th, 2021 We are hosting the live concert event and fashion show at the El Grande Ballroom located at 670 Greenbrae Drive in Sparks, Nevada 89431.Doors open at 6 pm.
The Break The Silence Extravaganza live concert will feature some of R&B’s and Hip Hop's top performers including but not limited to the legendary "Howard Hewett of “Shalamar'', Carolyn Griffey of “Shalamar” Marvaless, Jon Jon of “Troop”, Chesney Claire.

We are preparing for a percentage of the proceeds to benefit LEAFE Community in an effort to improve the housing opportunities available to victims and their families. The current housing programs available are strained and lack the resources to offer permanent housing. Because of housing issues, victims find themselves returning to their abusers, oftentimes suffering more for seeking help in the first place. LEAFE Community aims to change this.
Much of our funding comes from sponsorship resources and grants. However, this type of funding does not help us with vital projects like this. If we do not raise private funds and gain community support through events like this, we will not be able to reach our funding goals.
