The annual event is an opportunity to honor those who help NOVA in its mission to support victims of crime and end violence. There are over 200 volunteers assisting staff with tasks, including answering the 24/7 Helpline, working at the NOVA Thrift Shop, helping with special events, serving on the NOVA board, and providing administrative and committee support.
