Event Description

Please join us for an evening of art, fundraising, collaboration, action and community as we gather in solidarity to put an end to sexual assault and abuse. “Shine a Light” hosts annual fundraising events to shine a light for the millions of children, teens and women living in the shadows of sex trafficking and the commercial sex industry. The proceeds from these events will go to support organizations that are working tirelessly to put an end to sexual exploitation.

This year, Shine a Light will be offering two events, a year-end fundraising and networking event as well as a yoga event in January. We would love for you to join us on Saturday, December 1 from 6-8pm at Studio 151 at 151 North Pioneer Street in Ashland, Oregon. This event is not only a fundraising event, it is an opportunity for collaboration and connection with people and non-profit organizations in the Rogue Valley who are committed to protecting the often voiceless and vulnerable people and populations. Special pricing on some artwork and a raffle will be a part of the event. The studio artwork is offered with loving intention and healing awareness for the victims of sexual assault, abuse and exploitation.

 

Fundraising begins with this event on December 1. At this event, people will be offered an opportunity to make a year-end tax-deductible donation towards these anti-sex trafficking organizations. Additionally, all proceeds from the art event will go in support of this. Our focus for the art event is for year-end fundraising for 2018, collaboration and connection. There will be an additional opportunity to donate at the Shine a Light yoga event on January 27, 2019.

The United States is joining the One Trillion Trees Initiative, President Donald Trump said on Jan. 21.
