Cabaret's Impact

The mission of Rose Brooks Center is to break the cycle of domestic violence so that individuals and families can live free of abuse. Funds raised by Cabaret will change the course of a survivor’s life, as they find a safe future away from domestic violence. Thank you for your support and commitment to those who dream of a safe future.

Event Chairs

For 37 years Rose Brooks Center has presented Cabaret, an event to support services for victims of domestic violence, while bringing an entire community together to raise awareness about our mission. Please join our Event Chairs, Michelle Emanuel Johnson and Jeff Johnson, in continuing this beautiful tradition. Michelle is a current Rose Brooks board member, and serves as a committee chair for the PR and Marketing Committee.
