FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
August 27, 2013
#LovingHands Don’t Hit is a fundraiser to help raise awareness and educate about domestic violence with all proceeds to Osborne House and WISH
#LovingHands Don’t Hit is the fundraiser being organizing for Osborne House Inc. the same night Chris Brown was scheduled to appear in concert in Winnipeg. The goal of #LovingHands was to provide a positive, alternative event for people to attend and support instead of the concert.
#LovingHands is a way to bring forth an important and sobering message that domestic abuse is a crime that does not discriminate based on one’s age, education level, income level, postal code, race, or creed.
#LovingHands has garnered a great deal of media coverage both local and national, in print, radio and television. The community support and response have been huge. We already have surpassed our original fundraising goal of $1,000 and hope to double that on event day.
When: Thursday, August 29, 2013
4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Why: Because we cannot “Get a life and get over it”, and neither should you.
Location: Academy Lanes, 394 Academy Road, Winnipeg, MB
