Janna and some friends have put together a fund-raiser called “Light Up The Dark” to benefit the two teen girls who were beaten and sexually assaulted several weeks ago. The benefit will be held on Saturday, April 26, at the Black Eagle Community Center. And not only will the money help the families, but the community support will show the girls that most people are good, and hopefully give them some peace of mind.
And while I often doubt the effectiveness of “awareness” campaigns, April is in fact “Sexual Assault Awareness Month,” and participating in this event might be a good way to do something positive both towards raising awareness and helping victims of this despicable crime.
If you can’t attend, I’m sure any donations (goods or services) would be greatly appreciated. For more details, or to help, please call 216-2801.
