A Message from Our Executive Director Welcome to NOVA’s 2020 Roaring 20’s Auction! Thank you for coming together with our NOVA family this evening. We are especially appreciative that you are doing so during these difficult and unprecedented times. This is our first virtual gala, and we look forward to providing an entertaining evening for you. When our Auction Committee chose the theme ‘the roaring 20’s for this event 18 months ago, little did they know that the beginning of this decade would begin quite this way as these 20’s have certainly roared in like no other. But for tonight, at least, let’s harken back to those more carefree 20’s of the past! Thank you to our Auction Committee members who have worked tirelessly to arrange tonight’s event, especially so under such challenging circumstances. Their commitment to bringing this event to fruition has been nothing short of remarkable. We couldn’t have done it without you! NOVA is also grateful for the continued support of our many sponsors and contributors for this evening’s event and throughout the year. Please take note of the businesses that are supporting NOVA through sponsorship, advertisement or auction item donations. When you have a choice of where to dine, shop, or hire a service, please consider one that has supported our mission and services. We also wish to express our heartfelt gratitude to our dedicated and invaluable individual sponsors, and to all of you who donate to and give of yourselves to support NOVA. The money that we are able to raise tonight from this Roaring 20’s auction will help support NOVA’s vital services to victims and to educate children and adults on protecting themselves from violence. We know the rate of child sexual abuse and interpersonal violence has increased significantly during the pandemic. We will be here for every child and adult who comes through our doors, but we need your help to support our programs and services. This evening’s fundraising auction is a vital part of that support. Designated as an essential service, NOVA services remained available during the ‘stay at home order’ and throughout the pandemic. At the same time, we have lost over $200,000 in revenue due to the temporary closure of the NOVA Thrift Shop, and increases in operational costs as we ramped up the use of technology to provide programs and services in a safe and secure way. Your purchase of auction items and your contribution to the special appeal tonight will make a difference and help us to continue to ensure that every victim we serve has the opportunity to heal and move forward in their lives. So please remember that when you bid on any of the fabulous auction items or make a donation to the special appeal you are making a difference! Our success depends on you. I hope you enjoy the evening! My regards, Penelope R. Ettinger, Executive Director

Our Mission

Network of Victim Assistance (NOVA) supports, counsels, and empowers victims of sexual assault and other serious crimes in Bucks County and works to prevent and eliminate violence in society through advocacy, training, community education, and prevention programs.

nm

When a victim of sexual violence arrives at any of our local emergency rooms, NOVA SANE nurses respond within 1-hour to provide specialized health services and compassion. When after a NOVA school-based prevention program, a child discloses that they’ve been a victim of sexual abuse, NOVA Educators support the child and work with the school to make a ChildLine report. When an elderly man becomes a victim of fraud, NOVA Victim Advocates are there, walking hand-in-hand, allaying fears, explaining, guiding, and providing support throughout the criminal justice process. When a child sexual abuse case is investigated, NOVA, through the Child Advocacy Center, provides a safe and child-friendly space for child victims to speak about their abuse, to receive counseling and intervention services to aid in their healing, and to help avoid re-traumatization when being interviewed by members of the law enforcement investigative team. Striving for a safe community free of violence, NOVA provides hundreds of school-based and community prevention education programs on personal safety, mandated reporter training, and other topics providing children and adults with the information and tools to keep themselves and others safe. When any victim of crime reaches out for help, NOVA provides free stateof-the-art counseling services and victim advocacy to help them regain their dignity, health, and quality of life.

Our Vision

NOVA envisions a society free of violence, one that empowers individuals and promotes respect for the privacy, diversity, and dignity of all people.

Our Values

Our work is steeped in a belief that all individuals should be empowered to make decisions about their lives, to be secure from violation of their bodies and personal space, and to live in a society free from violence. We further believe that society has a responsibility to educate and support individuals with regard to these rights.

About our Guest Speaker

RACHAEL DEN

autobiograph Silence and E

"You started the tidal wave. You made all of this happen. You made all of these voices matter. Your sister survivors and I thank you. You are the bravest person I have ever had in my courtroom." — Judge Rosemarie Aquilina

Rachael Denhollander

Attorney, Author, Educator, Sexual Abuse Advocate WHY RACHAEL DENHOLLANDER IS CAPTIVATING AUDIENCES

Rachael Denhollander is an attorney, author, advocate, and educator who is recognized as a leading voice on the topic of sexual abuse. Possessing a unique blend of professional skills, personal experiences, and dynamic communication style, she is a sought-after media commentator, speaker, and consultant. Her grasp of legal issues, corporate ethics, effective leadership strategies, and investigative practices are coupled with a trauma-informed, deeply compassionate understanding of the realities facing survivors of sexual abuse and their path toward healing. Bridging the gap between survivors and the society and institutions that may have failed them, Denhollander forces audiences to ask the question, “What is a girl or boy worth?” while equipping them with the tools to answer, “Everything.” ABOUT RACHAEL DENHOLLANDER

Rachael Denhollander became known internationally in 2016 as the first woman to pursue criminal charges and speak publicly against USA Gymnastics’ team doctor Larry Nassar, one of the most prolific sexual abusers in recorded history. As a result of her activism over 300 women—including numerous Olympic medalists—came forward as survivors of Nassar’s abuse, eventually leading to his life imprisonment. Her courageous tenacity and ongoing advocacy helped trigger a complete upheaval at both USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University, where former executives and high-ranking officials face numerous criminal charges for their complicity in covering up Nassar’s abuse and lying about what they knew. Instrumental in helping secure a record-setting $500 million settlement with Michigan State University for Nassar survivors in 2018, she continues to act as a fiduciary representing her fellow survivors in USA Gymnastic’s ongoing bankruptcy proceedings. In 2019 she published an

RACHAEL DENHOLLANDER

GTN

autobiographical account of her experience entitled, What is a Girl Worth?: My Story of Breaking the Silence and Exposing the Truth about Larry Nassar and USA Gymnastics. Denhollander has extensive experience working with corporate boards, executive leadership, and politicians to help them understand how to lead with courage and integrity through crisis, how to communicate their values within their organizations and to the public, and how to properly respond to reports of abuse. She has advised the boards of some of the nation’s largest universities as they seek to address failures to adequately respond to abuse on their campuses. With extensive experience in the political realm, she has proven an effective advocate in helping push through vital legislative changes at the state level to make it easier for survivors of abuse to obtain justice. For her work as an advocate and educator on sexual assault, Denhollander was named one of TIME Magazine’s “100 Most Influential People in the World” and one of Glamour Magazine’s “Women of the Year” in 2018. Additionally, she received the “Inspiration of the Year” award from Sports Illustrated, was a joint recipient of ESPN’s “Arthur Ashe Courage Award,” and was named a “Michiganian of the Year” by the Detroit News, along numerous other awards and recommendations. Denhollander has engaged audiences with lectures and live Q&A’s on the campus of numerous universities across the nation, including Harvard, Stanford, NYU, Columbia Law School, UC Berkeley, USC, Pepperdine, and others. She has lectured on leadership at both the United States Military Academy at West Point and the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis, and been invited to keynote the National Center on Sexual Exploitation’s annual conference. Denhollander is a highly effective fundraising speaker for child advocacy centers, women’s shelters, and other organizations on the front lines of confronting abuse. A member of the California Bar Association, Denhollander has educated attorneys on the dynamics of sexual abuse at the American Bar Association’s Sports Law Forum, addressed top corporate attorneys on issues of institutional ethics and fiduciary responsibility at NYU Law School, and instructed attorneys at the annual meeting of the Kentucky Bar Association. Additionally, Denhollander was the commencement speaker at the graduation ceremony of Brandeis School of Law in 2018. She has appeared on CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX News, BBC, PBS, NPR and regularly appears in national and international print media, including the New York Times, Washington Post, Der Spiegel, Wall Street Journal, and the Associated Press, and is a New York Times and Vox op-ed contributor. Denhollander holds a Juris Doctorate from Oak Brook College of Law and possesses an honorary doctorate from the American University of Paris. Denhollander lives in Louisville, Kentucky with her husband Jacob and their four young children.
