On Thursday, December 4, from 11:35 am to 1:00 pm, YWCA Northeast Indiana will host its 18th Annual Circle of Women Luncheon fundraiser. This year’s event will take place at the Grand Wayne Center, 120 W Jefferson Blvd., Fort Wayne. The proceeds from the luncheon support YWCA Northeast Indiana’s Crisis Shelter, Outreach/Education Services, their Steps to Success Program, and other community-based programs that help domestic violence survivors become self-sufficient.
This year’s luncheon, titled Saving Our Own, seeks to shine a light on the dangerous world of human trafficking. The theme focuses on the growing epidemic that is prevalent in our own backyards. Author and speaker Theresa Flores will share how her life as an All-American, blue-eyed, blond-haired, 15-year-old teenager was catapulted into the dangerous world of sex trafficking while living in an upper-middle class suburb of Detroit, Michigan. Ms. Flores will discuss how she healed the wounds of sexual servitude, will present significant facts on human trafficking in modern day America, and will offer advice to parents and professionals on how to prevent this tragedy in our community.
Reservations will be accepted until November 25. During the program, guests are asked to make a minimum donation of $120 commemorating the 120 years of service that YWCA has provided to the Northeast Indiana community. All proceeds from the luncheon support YWCA’s services and programs. Anyone interested in attending the 2014 Circle of Women luncheon and supporting YWCA should contact Sue Hiatt at (260) 424-4908 ext. 254 or SHiatt@ywcaerew.org.
