Vegetarian (grilled confit portabella mushroom or a pasta dish)
Please let us know your dinner choice when you reserve your seat.
Guest speaker and honoree is: Lynda Clements.
It was over 35 years ago when Lynda Clements realized that the closing of the women’s shelter in Canton would put St. Lawrence County women and children at risk, should there be no place to go to flee domestic violence. With the abrupt closing of the shelter, Lynda quickly mobilized others in her North Country community to begin the process of establishing a task force and soon a network of safe homes for victims. It is because of her foresight and dedication to the well-being of those in her community that we have successfully established what is now a stable, safe space for all those needing supportive housing and services when they can no longer be safe in their own homes.
Please RSVP by October 5th.
If you are interested in reserving a table of 8, please call Ilene at 315-379-9845.
A silent auction will be taking place throughout the evening.
Also on display will be The Purple Purse designed by Serena Williams. This is a limited edition, solely for the 2017 Purple Purse Challenge, which will be available for auction. All proceeds from this item will be donated directly to the Renewal House Purple Purse Campaign, helping to empower victims of financial abuse.
If you would like to donate an item or items for the silent auction, please call Ilene or Shari.
All money collected will go directly to assisting victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in St. Lawrence County.
