"Every single artist will use their talent and creative voices as to how the outlet has helped them overcome trauma. If someone from high-school hasn't experienced trauma, but knows someone who has, their interpretation can also be featured. The performance and art pieces not only help us to bring attention to the issue and who we are as a resource, but it also helps us raise funds to keep our resources healthy so the organization can better help women," said Tracy Walker of Trauma Help for Women.
Trauma Help for Women (THW) was launched last year to help women heal from the physical and emotional effects of trauma, and grief caused by physical and/or sexual violence through supportive measures such as peer-to-peer encouragement. The multi-layered programs offered by the non-profit offers healing and resources to a wide-demographic of women with diverse traumatic experiences. The minimum bid for silent auction items for the June 25th event is fifty dollars. Performance pieces have to be submitted in advance to qualify for participation and all performance pieces must be family-friendly.
"We are hosting this event as a way to show the work that has to be done, as the impact trauma has, in the lives of our clients. Funding is needed to continue to allow our programs and resources to continue on. The positive awareness and the entertainment that will come from this event are exciting and we can't wait to start previewing the talent" finished Walker.
Interested participants for the showcase aspect of the New Beginnings fundraiser must submit a preview of their work to for review. Only family-friendly appropriate material under five minutes will be considered. 100 percent of all proceeds will go back to THW. The non-profit is also seeking co-sponsors.
Trauma Help for Women believes survivors can move forward with a healthy and successful life when provided the right tools and meaningful support.www.TraumaHelpforWomen.org
