The Fourth Annual Fundraising Luncheon will be held on Tuesday, April 23rd, 2013.Return to event list.
This year the event is entitled “Heart in a Handbag” and we will once again be highlighting Lissy’s Place.
Lissy’s Place is a transitional housing program designed to provide a safe and nurturing home environment to homeless women ages 17½ -29.
The goal of this program is to achieve self-sufficiency, develop independent living skills, promote healthy self-awareness and enhance career development for economic stability. Some of the woman that found solace at Lissy’s Place report that they “feel like they messed up and want to get their lives back on track.” Almost all of the women of Lissy’s Place have never experienced the caring of a nurturing and non-abusive family.It costs $60/day, per resident, to run Lissy’s Place.
We need your support. This year’s luncheon promises to attract 300 executives and upstanding community members. Corporate and community involvement is essential in making this event a success. It is only through the generosity of individuals and business like yours that allow us to keep the doors of Lissy’s Place open.
