On Feb 16, 2017, Leaders on the Horizon, Safe Horizon’s volunteer leadership council, presents: Speakeasy A Benefit For Safe Horizon to raise funds and awareness for Safe Horizon. The fundraiser will take place at the famous Webster Hall.
Safe Horizon, the leading victim services non-profit organization in the United States, provides a host of services for victims of abuse and violence in 57 locations throughout the 5 boroughs of New York. Established in 1978 as a pilot program in New York City’s court system, Safe Horizon’s original mission was to assist criminal court witnesses who had been intimidated, or who felt too threatened to testify in court. Since then, they have expanded their reach to help homeless youth, victims of domestic violence, victims of human trafficking, and some of New York’s most vulnerable citizens – victims of child abuse. Today, Safe Horizon touches the lives of more than 250,000 New Yorkers each year, helping victims of crime and abuse move from crisis to confidence.
Tickets are $150 but donations in any amount, in lieu of attendance, can be made on their site: https://www.safehorizon.org/events/speakeasy-a-benefit/
