The Rutland County Women’s Network and Shelter would like to extend thanks to the businesses that have helped underwrite the Saturday, March 8 “Safety Dance” in support of our mission to end domestic violence and sexual assault in our community.
We are extremely grateful to the Submuloc Lounge (Knights of Columbus Hall) for providing the venue, and to Truly Unique Gift Shop, the Vermont Truffle Co., The Vermont Country Store, Maple Leaf Quilters, Pyramid Holistic Wellness Center, Fair Haven Auto, Stafford Technical Center, Allied Auto, the Rutland Food Coop and The Bird Place of Manchester for providing door prizes.
Our Board of Trustees, staff and volunteers extend an invitation to the community to join us on Saturday. Come and show your support for making our community a better place while taking advantage of a great opportunity to dance away the late-winter blues. A social hour, snacks, and cash bar will start at 6:30 p.m.; dancing starts at 7:30 p.m. to music provided by the DJ from “2KUL”. Tickets are $20 per person ($10 for college students with college picture ID) and are available in advance (call Nicole at 786-5662) or at the door (Submuloc Lounge at 21 Merchants Row, next to the Court House). We hope to see you there.
