“Our continued involvement and support come from the amazing work that WSS does to combat and deal with domestic violence. It is an amazing organization that works tirelessly with many volunteers to produce this well run and beautiful show.”



Trade Secrets is the primary fundraising event for Women’s Support Services (WSS) in Sharon, CT. WSS is committed to creating a community free of domestic violence and abuse and working with children and teens to develop healthy relationships in their lives. As an Underwriter, your support brings a beautiful event to life and helps families and individuals find the support and services they need to build safer futures. What could be better than that?


Underwriters cover the cost of Trade Secrets – ensuring that all proceeds go directly to support the programs of Women’s Support Services – 30% of the annual budget. We couldn’t do this without you!

All Underwriters are welcomed at a special entrance and receive early buying tickets to our Saturday Garden and Antiques Sale, including a complimentary breakfast, as well as tickets to our Garden Tours on Sunday. Depending on the level of support you choose, you may also receive VIP parking passes.

­­­If you have any questions at all, please call Shelly Ross Robbins, Director of Development, at (860) 364-1080 or srossrobbins@wssdv.org.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to welcoming you at Trade Secrets 2019!
