The reason I created the Gimme Shelter Fundraiser :
I was made aware of the an organization called Wild Iris. It is a crises center for victims of domestic violence in California. I was told that in Inyo and Mono counties we do not have shelter to house famlies in these situations. My life story was hard growing up, just like everyone else we all have our own personal stories. I decided to turn my pain into strength. Raising money to rent a home for victims of domestic violence will inturn give them the chance to have a new lease on thier lifes.
Press Release from Wild Iris
Gimme Shelter, the brainchild of local Mammoth Lakes resident Donna Richards, is a fundraising event set to take place July 10th through July 20th, 2014 on the grounds of the Sierra Nevada Resort and Spa in Mammoth Lakes, California. The 10-day event will feature traditional carnival rides, booths, games, local music and more.
This 1st annual event is being held to assist Wild Iris, a local non-profit serving victims of domestic violence sexual assault and child abuse, in establishing a long term safe shelter for victims and their children who are in crisis. The goal is to raise $60,000, which will provide long term housing for victims and their children, as well as much needed services such as counseling, life skills and job training. By providing these services, victims and their children will have a better chance of breaking free from the abuse, and living an independent life free from violence.
