Inaugural Heartland Family Service Event Raises Over $10K
In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month in October, Heartland Family Service (HeartlandFamilyService.org) hosted its “Strengthen Our Survivors” fundraising event on October 28.
During the brand new event, which was created to raise both awareness and funds to further the organization’s community initiatives and outreach, attendees enjoyed brunch and an artisan vendor fair. All proceeds will support Heartland Family Service’s Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Services program. In total, “Strengthen Our Survivors” raised $10,950! Special thanks are extended to Lynn Muller, who served as event chair, and all of the attendees who made it such a great success.
