The GFWC Spring Station Woman’s Club is hosting “Behind the Mask Masquerade” as the 5th annual Amethyst Affair – rt, Auction & Awareness on behalf of survivors of domestic violence.
The event will be held on Saturday, February 9, 2019 at the UAW Hall, Spring Hill.
A limited number of tickets are available at www.amethystaffair.com.
This fundraiser for Maury County’s Center of Hope Domestic Violence Shelter and Williamson County’s BRIDGES Domestic Violence Shelter.
The party will be a semi-formal/formal masquerade event full of food, fun, live and silent auctions, music and dancing, a photo booth, with activities focused on raising awareness and shedding the secrecy about the life-altering effects of domestic violence on its victims.
Behind the Mask is the theme for the 2019 event: There are many aspects to domestic violence, and the pain is often hidden among the many masks that victims wear to hide the emotional and physical turmoil they experience.
Sponsorships are available to local businesses, individuals and organizations and range from $250 to $5,000. GFWC club members are actively recruiting donations for the silent and live auctions, always a highlight of the evening. Email GFWCSpringStation@gmail.com for more information.
In addition to raising money for the shelters, the goal for the evening is also to raise funds for the club to support local community projects, mainly in Spring Hill and Thompson’s Station. During the past several years, The GFWC Spring Station Woman’s Club has raised more than $20,000 in support of the shelters. Domestic Violence Awareness and Prevention is a Signature Project of the international General Federation of Woman’s Clubs (GFWC).
Amethyst Affair – Art, Auction & Awareness is at 6 p.m., Feb. 9.
UAW Hall, 125 Stephen P. Yokich Parkway, Spring Hill
