Come out and cheer on your favourite community stars!

We are excited about our upcoming fundraiser!  Elena Esina of Shift: A Project to End Domestic Violence, will be sharing helpful information about what we can do when we suspect domestic abuse is occurring.  Is there anything we can do?  What’s appropriate?  What’s not?

A brief intermission will give you time to bid on some amazing silent auction items.  A short live auction will follow and then it’s time for “Dancing with the Stars” version 2.0 Leduc.

Come out and cheer on your favourite community star!  You may see your hairdresser, a fireman, a policeman, your banker!  It will be a casual, fun filled competition to benefit a great cause. Funds raised will allow Riseup to continue to provide services to those experiencing domestic abuse.

Tell your friends and enjoy a fun night out while supporting a great cause!
