April 2016 is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and the Rape Crisis Center’s 40th anniversary. We will be hosting several community awareness events including our Annual “Kicking Out Sexual Violence” Kickball Tournament. It will be held on Saturday, April 9th at Sage Park and we are anticipating over 150 players this year. If there is a rain delay on the date, the make-up date will be Saturday, April 16th, at Sage Park.
All proceeds from this event will benefit one of Mobile’s most important and essential services to the community, the Rape Crisis Center, a program of Family Counseling Center dba Lifelines Counseling Services (501(c)(3)), a local, United Way agency. The Rape Crisis Center provides direct services to sexual assault victims and their families in Mobile, Washington and Clarke Counties. Our services are provided on a 24/7 basis to victims at local hospitals and through our crisis line. In choosing to support the Rape Crisis Center, you assist in the vital work of providing individual counseling, hospital/court accompaniment, emergency transportation, counseling and support groups. These services are provided at no cost due to grants and generous donations, like yours. In 2015, we provided these services to 635 victims and their loved ones.
Please help us make the 2016 tournament and awareness month a success! We are currently seeking sponsors. Your gift is tax deductible and will benefit children and adults in your community who have been sexually assaulted.
