ANN ARBOR – The local chapter of Take Back the Night, an international event and nonprofit with a mission to end sexual violence, will be holding its annual benefit and silent auction March 23 at Polo Fields Country Club.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with strolling hors d'oeuvres and bidding on silent auction items donated by local and national businesses, including Zingermans and Cherry Republic. A sit-down dinner will be served at 6:30 p.m.

Tickets are $65 for general admission. Students and donors who wish to be recognized can receive special pricing. Buy tickets here.

All of the net proceeds raised from the silent auction and benefit will go toward putting on the annual Take Back the Night Ann Arbor march and rally.
