Local Friendraiser to Support, Raise Awareness for Survivors Rising
The Women’s Fund Circles is set to host a “Friendraiser” on October 5th from 5-9 p.m. at Vino Mas, located at 14450 Eagle Run Drive in Omaha. The event will provide an opportunity to introduce and connect Survivors Rising (survivorsrising.org) to the community. Wine tasting, food and networking will take place from 5-7 p.m., with a brief presentation offered by Survivors Rising beginning at 6 p.m. with an overview of the organization followed by a survivor sharing her story of violence and resilience. Following that, music will be provided by Kevin Killion until 9 p.m. Members of the Survivors Rising Speakers Bureau will also be available throughout the evening to talk about their personal experience and educate attendees about sex trafficking, sexual exploitation, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence and stalking.
Cost to attend is $20, cash only, with a portion donated to Survivors Rising as well as 10% of all additional purchases during the event.
Survivors Rising is dedicated to advocacy, education, and support for survivors of sex trafficking, sexual exploitation, sexual assault, domestic/dating violence and stalking.
