The Junior League of Northwest Arkansas will host a ‘Moonlight Masquerade’ fundraiser event in Fayetteville on October 26, 2013 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. to bring awareness to domestic violence in our community and to raise funds to benefit local shelters and charities that share in the League’s mission to end domestic violence in Northwest Arkansas, such as Peace at Home Family Shelter and The Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter.
The cocktail event, which is open to the public, will serve as a fundraiser to benefit the league’s local mission and platform of ending domestic violence in our community. Tickets can be purchased online at www.JuniorLeagueNWA.org for $75 per person, and include food, drinks, and dancing. There will be a raffle and silent auction. Cocktail attire, festive masks, and theatrical hair and makeup are strongly encouraged at the event.
“With one in four women being affected by Domestic Violence it is likely that we all know someone who has been a victim”, Britt Clem, Committee Chair of Public Awareness. “An event such as the Masquerade Ball helps to bring domestic violence out of the shadows by increasing awareness of these victims that often suffer in silence.”
“Our members work every day to help end domestic violence in our community, through league projects and volunteer support for agencies like Peace at Home and The Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter,” adds Activities and Arrangements committee chair, Allison Ellison. “We are excited to be able to host an event the community can enjoy while benefiting an important cause.”
This is the second year the League will host a ‘Moonlight Masquerade,’ and the committees hope to see it added as a continuing annual event in the future.
