Joe Molina Studios is hosting a fundraiser for AWP!
This fashion show fundraiser's main goal is to provide funding for new backyard playground equipment. This fashion show is open to the public. A Woman's Place's top priority is to provide a SAFE shelter for victims/survivors of domestic violence. While some individual's stay can be short, it is important that the staff make the shelter feel like a safe home. This new backyard playground will allow children to play safely in the backyard when parents are unable to leave the shelter for their own safety reasons.
Please Join Joe Molina Studios and AWP on November 20th from 6:30pm-9pm to lend a helping hand.
In honor of domestic violence awareness month look for table tents or AWP information at your favorite restaurants.
Enjoy some delicious food while raising money for AWP!
Every Thursday of the Month,
The Outback Restaurant and Pub will be donating a portion of the proceeds to AWP.
