RECIPIENT

In a historically male dominated hobby we feel it is our duty to act as allies and active participants in the prevention of interpersonal violence. On that note this event’s proceeds are going to support The Center Against Domestic Violence for the third year running. The Center Against Domestic Violence works toward a society free of violence and abuse. The Center leads the way by offering education and prevention programs and promoting the well-being and economic independence of survivors of abuse. Dedicated to cultivating a society free from abuse, the Center Against Domestic Violence drives cultural change through education and intervention. Their groundbreaking programs for high school, middle school and elementary school students teach young people how to identify and avoid domestic violence so they can develop healthy relationships. The individualized services provided by their shelters strive to give residents the tools they need to break the pattern of domestic violence and start life anew.
