Beth and Tim Tiger, founders of Durga Tree present Sarah Symons of Made By Survivors with a $40,000 check from the fall gala at the Hudson Farm Club in Andover.

The masquerade ball was held in November to raise money to help stop human trafficking and featured celebrity guests such as The New Jersey Real Housewife, Dina Manzo among other high-profile locals.

Durga Tree was created to raise funds for the many small charities committed to the full eradication of human trafficking around the globe.

Sarah Symons and her husband John Berger founded Made By Survivors in 2005 which has jewelry that is handmade by survivors of human trafficking and other human rights abuses in India, Nepal and Thailand. The jewelry is first designed and then the women are trained to handcraft each piece.
