Hopeful Horizons joined with the community on May 13 to honor women who have made a difference in the lives of others.
“This community event is a reminder that we are stronger when we empower one another,” said Kristin Dubrowski, COO of Hopeful Horizons. “Lilies on the River is a powerful annual event that honors women who have given so much to others.”
“Every year at this event I am reminded of the amazing impact one voice can make,” said Shauw Chin Capps, CEO of Hopeful Horizons. “Together, we are a collective voice that can end abuse and change lives.”
For every $15 tax deductible donation that was given, a lily was released at the event in honor of an important woman in that individual’s life.
All proceeds from the event benefit Hopeful Horizons’ efforts to create a safer community by changing the culture of violence and offering a path to healing.
Hopeful Horizons is the local child advocacy, domestic violence and rape crisis center. Visit www.hopefulhorizons.org.
