This year's unique hybrid event will feature an engaging virtual program to watch in the comfort of your home, an enticing online auction, and the option of a socially distanced tour of the newly renovated Tubman Chrysalis Center, along with a catered party box of refreshments. 

The Virtual Program 

Starting at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 1, Tubman will share a virtual program that we invite all to watch from the comfort of their homes. Your virtual host will be T. Mychael Rambo, regional Emmy-Award winning actor, vocalist, educator, and community organizer and Jennifer Polzin, Tubman CEO. You can register in advance for free to receive the link.

On-Site Tour & Party Box

And for those who wish, you may purchase a ticket and join us to tour our newly renovated Tubman Chrysalis Center and learn more about Tubman's mission and services. Due to COVID-19, tours have limited availability, and time slots will be reserved in advance for groups of no more than four people. Groups will be socially distanced and must wear masks. Attendees will also receive a catered party box of refreshments. Click here to purchase your ticket!

We hope you can join us during this critical time of increased need for Tubman services, as more people are experiencing isolation, fear, and violence due to the pandemic. They may not know when they can safety call for help, but together with your support, Tubman will answer. 


From all of us at Tubman, thank you now more than ever for supporting our mission of safety, hope, and healing.
