Driving Out Domestic Violence was founded in 2011 to support Chrysalis’ domestic abuse programs. Lauren Teahen and her husband, Mark, a retired professional baseball player, founded Driving Out Domestic Violence in honor of Lauren’s late mother, Shelley, a domestic abuse survivor.
“Every year we are amazed at the outpouring of support by not only our celebrity friends but also the community at large who turn out to support Chrysalis and this life-saving agency,” said Lauren Teahen. “As I saw first-hand in my own family, domestic violence doesn’t know any boundaries. It can strike anytime, in any family and no one is immune. That is why it is so very important to have a place like Chrysalis.”
The 2019 Honorary chairs are Tiffany and John Gaston. To date, Driving Out Domestic Violence Celebrity Golf & Gala, has raised more than $2.5 million for Chrysalis and victims of domestic violence.
“Over the past 8 years, Driving Out Domestic Violence has lived up to its name. We are collectively raising the level of awareness in our community about this issue and tearing down barriers that exist for victims of domestic violence. Chrysalis is deeply grateful to the Teahens for partnering with us and demonstrating such passion and enthusiasm for this cause,” said Patricia Klahr, President & CEO of Chrysalis.
Chrysalis, a 38-year-old Arizona agency, leads the community to broad-based solutions to prevent domestic abuse. The lives of more than 1,400 individuals are positively impacted each year through the agency’s programs. Services include crisis shelter, transitional housing, outpatient counseling, offender treatment, victim advocacy and lay-legal support.
