A year has come and gone since our transition of directors here at the Women's Center, and oh, what a year it has been. Growing, learning, and seeing lives transformed. We continue serving the community to the best of our ability while improving upon the services we offer. Our mission is never complete even though we hope one day sexual assault and domestic violence ceases to be a part of anyone’s life. Our goal is to work ourselves out of business which is not a typical business model but hey, we are by no means a typical business. We seek out partners in the community, state and federal government to sustain our efforts. We depend on the generosity of our community who believe in what we do to further the cause. Over the past year, I have seen the heart of giving within Brazoria County countless church groups, social clubs, individuals, local government, and individuals simply wanting to impact people’s lives in a positive way. In no way could I ever express the amount of gratitude we have for being part of a community such as ours. No one can stand alone in this cause and I am reminded of that on a daily basis and thankful knowing the Women’s Center will never have to stand alone.
So, what’s going on around here that is of significant importance to us, you may ask. Our biker friends are at it again with their 12th annual fundraiser at the Brazoria County Fairgrounds on August 8th and 9th 2014. There will be a BBQ cook off, escorted bike ride, live bands, a car and bike show, BBQ sandwiches for sale Friday night, BBQ plates for sale Saturday and a live auction Saturday afternoon. If that wasn’t enough these guys are auctioning off a 2014 20’ Sportsman Classic Travel Trailer and the tickets are only $10 a piece. (Winner does not have to be present to win and is responsible for tax title and license) Tickets can be purchased Mike’s Icehouse in Pearland, our Angleton office on Valderas, Cattleman’s Westernwear in Alvin, Xtreme Bedliners in Pearland, or at the event. The drawing is on Saturday August 9th. This wonderful group of volunteers pour their heart and soul into this year after year for the last 12 years, while providing the Women’s Center with huge financial support. I hope you will help support us through this event and have some fun while you’re out there. Spread the word and purchase some raffle tickets, food or spend some money at the live auction all of the money goes to us and setting up for the next year. We hope to see you there.
