LOS ANGELES, CA – APRIL 06: Actress Ciera Payton attends the 2013 Jenesse Silver Rose Awards Gala and Auction at Vibiana on April 6, 2013 in Los Angeles, California.

Spear headed by Halle Berry, the 2013 Jeness Silver Rose Awards Gala helps to shed light on the Jenesse organization that is a safe haven for families affected by domestic abuse.


Jenesse Center envisions and hopes for a world in which every person lives in a safe environment, free from violence and oppression, and with the opportunity to thrive. We believe that all individuals have the right to live without fear of abuse.

Our purpose is twofold, one to support the path of all survivors as they work to be self sufficient and live lives free from violence. Secondly, to support primary and secondary prevention strategies that lead to the eventual end of domestic violence.

“Because of you” and your support of this work, hope is tangible.

The Silver Rose Weekend is the annual gathering time where Jenesse board members, staff, our Chairperson, Halle Berry, and friends, all join together as a community to recognize how far we have come. We also honor the journey and spotlight those who in this season are essential in helping Jenesse create lives full of hope and possibility.

Ciera attended with the gala and auction hosted by actress Jurnee Smollett-Bell and comic Buddy Lewis. The evening included a silent auction, live donation raffle, and live performances by Kem, Ledisi, and Trevin Hunte

Ciera was featured in wireimage, gettyimages, and filmmagic.
