October 16, 2015 was the 11th annual Diva Night at Hotplate, a yearly fundraiser for the Women's Center. A big thank you to Sue Kensington at Hotplate for hosting and Ms. Joey Black and Mercedes Benzova for the talented entertainment. It was a superb night for all the guests and the Women's Center.
The Women’s Center has received a $5,300 grant from the Banfield Charitable Trust for its Sasawin Project. This grant is in addition to three-year funding for the Sasawin Project from the AKC Humane Fund.
The Sasawin mission is to provide refuge for the companion animals of domestic-violence survivors through a foster care network, preserving the relationship between these animals and their families
The Sasawin Project enables survivors, their children and their companion animals to safely transition from Harbor House to permanent, pet-friendly housing as an intact family unit. During this transition, the Sasawin Project can provide fostering, basic care items, routine and emergency veterinary services, and animal behavior consultation as needed, at no cost to survivors or foster families.
A big thank you to all of our local customers and business for making our Customer Appreciation Day a huge success.
