The Late Maxine Carter liked to say her life encompassed everything from chocolate bars to caviar. Beginning her career as a struggling dancer, the 100-year-old philanthropist performed her way to the top, where she danced at the famous Copacabana, hosted a TV talk show in New York City and even dated Clark Gable. Because of her amazing life, Carter believed that a positive outlook can inspire survivors of domestic violence to overcome their struggles. With a bequest to The Shelter, she left a legacy of strength for future generations.
