Upcoming events for Domestic Violence Awareness Month

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. During this month, the Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault Coalition features several community awareness events. DVSAC is inviting the community to connect with and support the organization at the following local events. Purple ribbons and pins are available at the DVSAC service center and local businesses.

On Saturday, Oct. 12, DVSAC will benefit from a percentage of proceeds from noon to 7 p.m. at the Smith Vineyard Tasting Room, 142 Mill St. and from noon to 4 p.m. at the Smith Vineyard Winery & Pumpkin Patch, 13718 Dog Bar Road.

On Thursday, Oct. 17, from 5 to 9 p.m. DVSAC, Insight Imaging and Chapa-De are collaborating with community service providers to offer an “October PamperFest” for domestic violence victims and survivors. This offer of free mammograms, makeovers and massages with appetizers by Cirino’s acknowledges that Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Domestic Violence Awareness Month share October and encourages people to take care of themselves while having fun. The evening features makeup by M3 Mall and portraits by Joy Porter Photography and comes with glamour shots and child care while on site.
