Light the Night Dance Against Domestic Violence

The West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence in partnership with Christopher Vincent and Fara Maraikayer invite you to “Light the Night-Dance for DV”. The event is scheduled for Friday, April 20, 2018 at the Woman’s Club of Charleston in Charleston, WV from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.

This event will raise money for the Empowerment Fund, providing transitional assistance for domestic violence victims and survivors in order to promote a non-violent lifestyle. Since the Empowerment Fund was established in 2009, over 142 individuals and families in West Virginia have received more than $39,600 in benefits. These benefits vary from providing clothes for children in need to assisting with car repairs and tires so that survivors can have transportation to and from work in their new beginning. The Empowerment Fund has also helped many victims and survivors with furthering their education by purchasing textbooks and other school necessities. Proceeds from this event are given directly to victims and survivors through the Empowerment Fund.

With your help, we know that we can transform the lives of women, children, men, and families who are victims and survivors of domestic violence. That is why the West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Christopher Vincent and Fara Maraikayer are passionate and committed to the cause. If you are also passionate about helping individuals overcome the violence and rebuild their lives, we hope you consider purchasing a ticket or making a donation.

If you would like more information on the Empowerment Fund, please contact Joyce Yedlosky or Tonia Thomas of the West Virginia Coalition Against Domestic Violence at 304-965-3552 or email or
