Hope & Healing Gala
We wish to thank everyone who sponsored, donated to, volunteered for, and attended our Hope & Healing Gala last Friday June 8, 2018. Through this annual fundraiser, we raised $70,925! Not only will these funds support the vital healing services and prevention education our center provides, they also fill us with hope for the future we are building together. Each one of the hundreds of individuals and businesses who made our gala a success remind us that we are not alone in this fight, and that good is all around us.
Still Not Asking For It hosted by Ashley Love and Yellow Rose Tattoo
On Sunday June 10, 2018 the third annual "Still Not Asking For It" (SNAFI) tattoo flash fundraiser was held. Thanks to Ashley Love and the incredible people over at Yellow Rose Tattoo, $23,617 was raised for our center. This event was one of many SNAFI events, all held on the same day around the globe. We are humbled by the incredible kindness and generosity shown by the tattoo community through SNAFI, and feel so inspired by Ashley Love and her crew. These funds will help our center keep up with the rising demand for services and ensure that survivors are supported in their healing. Thank you to everyone who participated in this years SNAFI event!
V-Day Club at Westminster College
The fabulous V-Day Club at Westminster College dropped off a check for $6,728 dollars, all proceeds from their annual Vagina Monologues performances. These students worked tirelessly to put on a beautiful production back in February, and both their show and the proceeds from it have an profound impact on raising awareness and support for survivors of sexual violence. On behalf of all of us at the Rape Recovery Center, THANK YOU to the everyone who made the 20th anniversary of the Vagina Monologues a success!
