Support can be beautiful. AND oh so fun! Take for instance the annual Dancing for a Brand New Me competition benefit put on by Lassen Family Services. LoCaLs putting it all their dance skills out there for everyone to see…and JUDGE. Yikes. These are some brave folks that do it all for all good cause.
LFS Fiscal Director Kerri Cobb told me what it is all about~
"Lassen Family Services Inc is hosting our annual Dancing for a Brand New Me Fundraising Outreach Event Oct 19th and 20th! We are so excited to have so many amazing volunteers from our Community as our Professional and Star Dancers all working hard and practicing to bring you an amazing show! It’s all to benefit Lassen Family Services, our many service programs, bring awareness to the community and and resources to Domestic Violence Victims."
"When I came to work at Lassen Family Services I thought that I knew what they did here, but it is so much more than I imagined. This event is part of Domestic Violence Awareness Month and not only does it provide funds for us to empower our participants but it brings awareness to Domestic Violence and the impact it has on individuals and families in our community. Here is just part of what we at Lassen Family Services offers:
24 hour crisis line and on call Crisis Intervention trained Peer Counselors to help victims of Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault in our Community.
A staffed Shelter as well as a clothing closet and food pantry for our participants.
We partner with many County service agencies to give people resources to PHASE into empowerment.
Child Abuse Treatment Program and Court Appointed Special Advocates to round out our services to help families become whole. Lassen Family Services is the only service agency of our kind in Lassen County, we are looking forward to an exciting and powerful event. Please join us on October 19th and 20th, tickets are available now at our office at 1306 Riverside Drive.”
