Join us for "Crowns of Courage," a transformative luncheon benefiting Daya’s mission to end domestic and sexual violence in Houston’s South Asian community. Together, we will draw inspiration from powerful Greek goddesses who embody justice, resilience, and unwavering courage in the face of adversity. 


Thursday, September 21, 2023

Doors Open at 11:00am

Program starts promptly at 11:30am.


Immerse yourself in the elegance of the Junior League of Greater Houston, an atmosphere that  serves as a reminder of the beauty that emerges from overcoming challenges.


The funds raised will help victims escape violent homes, support survivors in building new lives, and provide long-term healing resources to break the generational cycle of violence. By supporting this event, you become an agent of change, standing with survivors and working towards a future free from violence and fear. 


ATHENA /  Goddess of wisdom, warfare, and artisans


Emcee & Special Guest

We’re thrilled to welcome NYC- based comedian and writer, Abby Govindan, as our emcee and performer. Abby made her comedic debut at Caroline’s on Broadway in New York City in 2017. Within a year of pursuing comedy, she had a meteoric rise after she went viral for her sharp wit and comedic ingenuity. Abby has performed at venues all over the country and, in 2019, toured as a headliner for several colleges while being a college student herself. She has also opened for comedy heavyweights such as Hasan Minhaj, Daniel Sloss, and Russell Peters.Through her wit and humor, she will uplift our spirits, ignite laughter, and remind us of the indomitable spirit within each survivor. Laughter has the power to heal and unite, and together, we will celebrate the courage of survivors while fostering collective joy.
