Fashion Designer Abi Ferrin and WFAA Sports Anchor Dale Hansen Headline Chetna's 12th Anniversary Gala


(Dallas, Texas - April 17, 2017) CHETNA will be hosting its 12th Anniversary Fundraising Gala on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at the InterContinental Hotel in Addison, Texas from 6:30 p.m. onwards. This year's Gala themed "Break the Silence" is encouraging the community to stand together in solidarity with victims of domestic violence to "be part of WE." The evening will feature stories of triumph over domestic violence from Guest of Honor, Abi Ferrin, renowned Dallas fashion designer and human rights activist, and Keynote Speaker Dale Hansen, WFAA Sports Anchor and Man in the Movement. The Mistress of Ceremonies (MC) will be WFAA Anchor Sonia Azad.

Domestic violence is a pervasive issue that affects our communities. Nationally, ONE in THREE women and ONE in FOUR men are victims of domestic violence, and those numbers increase among certain minority populations, including the South Asian American community.

Proceeds from this event will go to CHETNA, a local 501(c)(3) organization which supports South Asian victims of domestic violence living in North Texas.

Abi Ferrin has a passion for empowering women and has been doing so through her eponymous clothing line for 14 years. As a fashion designer, she has had a perfect platform to inspire women, and as a philanthropist she created her company to support women while dressing them.  

Dale Hansen is the weeknight sports anchor during the 6 and 10 p.m. newscasts on WFAA-TV (Channel 8) and also hosts Dale Hansen's Sports Special on Sundays at 10:20 p.m. In 1987, Hansen was honored with the George Foster Peabody Award for Distinguished Journalism. That same year, he won the duPont-Columbia Award for his contribution to the investigation of SMU's football program. As a result of this investigation, the NCAA prohibited SMU from fielding a football program in 1987.
