Luminating Life Shelter Fundraiser
Mid-Minnesota Women's Center will host its annual fundraiser on Thursday, October 11, 2018 at 5:30pm at Luminary Fern, located in the historic Clocktower at Northern Pacific Center to raise funds so we can continue offering hope and saving lives!
MMWC believes everyone deserves to live a life free of violence. As you probably know, domestic violence is an issue that impacts millions...but you probably did not realize 1 in 4 women (that's more than breast, ovarian and lung cancer combined) and 1 in 7 men in the United States have been the
victim of severe physical violence by an intimate partner in their lifetime. What does that look like for the 91,227 people who consider the Brainerd Lakes Area home? Well, our 24-hour domestic violence shelter provided services to 904 individuals last quarter (April-June 2018) alone.
We are so very excited to announce 2018 Ms. United States Alyssa Deltorre will be our guest speaker this year! Tickets are limited; we recommend purchasing yours early to secure your spot. We will have Prairie Bay Grill & Catering, cash bar, music, silent auction and a wine/liquor lottery!
Every dollar raised at the event will go directly to our efforts to end domestic violence! Please contact Vicki, MMWC shelter manager, at (218) 828-1216 or firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase tickets, make a tax-deductible donation or learn more about sponsoring the event.
