The Chocolate Walk

The Chocolate Walk is held in May in conjunction with Harrisonburg's First Fridays Downtown. Participants follow a Chocolate Walk map, which guides them through downtown as they stop at participating stores, restaurants, businesses, and offices along the walk's route and sample a wide variety of handcrafted chocolates prepared by the area's best chefs, bakers, and the Collins Center's confectionary-minded supporters.

The Disco Gala

As the Collins Center's largest fundraiser, the Annual Disco Gala in the fall brings over 150 supporters together each year to raise critical funds towards our mission of eliminating sexual violence and its impact in our community.

The fun-filled evening at Beyond includes dinner, drinks, music and dancing. The event is supported by generous sponsors and local businesses that donate items to the live and silent auctions. Tickets are $75 per person and proceeds from the event support the services of the Collins Center.

The date for the 2017 Disco Gala has not yet been set. Check back for more details on logistics, sponsorships, tickets, and more.
