The District IV HRDC Domestic Abuse Program held a spaghetti dinner and silent auction on Saturday, Oct. 9. The event was a fundraiser for The Haven, our local domestic violence and sexual assault shelter, which is in need of a new stove, dishwasher and refrigerator.
The dinner and auction were a huge success due to the generosity of our community. Everything, from the auction items to the food that was served, was donated. This allowed us to put on this event at no cost to our program and making the whole night a complete profit.
Many community members came and enjoyed the night. The Domestic Abuse Program would like to thank everyone who came to our event in support of our program. We would also like to thank all of the businesses that gave generous donations for our auction.
