Get Lit. Against Domestic Violence

Join us for a night of fundraising to benefit The Center for Prevention of Abuse at the Second Annual Get Lit. Against Domestic Violence on Wednesday, October 18th at 7 pm. At last year's event, we successfully raised over $500 for the Center for Prevention of Abuse, and we hope we can top that amount this year! The event will be our usual open mic, but with on topic performances to help raise awareness of domestic violence. Our very special guests, Lock And Key Burlesque, will be performing a special piece created just for this event, and volunteers from the shelter will also be present to talk to us about domestic violence and the valuable services they provide to the community. The event will feature a bake sale and silent auction with all proceeds going to the Center, as well as a monetary and non-monetary donation drive to benefit the shelter. We are in need of donations for the silent auction, so please contact Jessica at (309) 634-5383 or message Lit. on Fire to let us know if you would like to donate items or volunteer your time! Please see the list of approved items for non-monetary donations below, mark your calendars, and check back here frequently, as I will be updating this event as more details unfold!
