In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month (October), men and women, including La Jolla resident Sabrina Martucci-Johnson, will stand up to domestic violence — in heels. The YWCA of San Diego County presents its annual fundraiser, “Walk a Mile in Her Shoes,” 10 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 14 at Martin Luther King Promenade Park (Fourth and K streets) in downtown San Diego.
