A Charitable Month

charitable givingSeptember is here! The first two weeks are quite full for my family.  Not only do we have various Labor Day festivities, but we also have a number of charity events coming up:

Friday, September 4th, The Greene in Beavercreek is hosting a Night at the Greene… Vegas Style! block party for the Family Violence Prevention Center.  The Family Violence Prevention Center is a full service domestic violence shelter, offering free housing, meals, clothing, and other care items as well as ongoing treatment for victims of abuse in the local area.  Dice will begin to roll at 7 pm with full Vegas fare: gambling tables, impersonators, live music, street performers, drinks, great food, prizes, and more.   All alcohol proceeds benefit the Family Violence Prevention Center!  This event is open to the public, but participants must be at least 21 years of age.  I’ll be trying my hand as a dealer at one of the various game tables.  Its sure to be a great night!

The following weekend, Saturday, September 12th, The Corner Cone Dairy Bar & Grill, in Yellow Springs, is hosting the Music for Medicine Benefit Concert in honor of The Luke Commission.  Various Dayton area bands will be playing every hour on the outdoor deck and The Corner Cone will donate $1 to TLC for every REGULAR ICE CREAM CONE sold that day.  Festivities kick off at 11:30 am and the music will be flowing until at least 9.  The musical itinerary is as follows:

11 am Full Circle

12 pm FOG

1 pm  Blueboy

2 pm  Bettina Solas

3 pm  Kaleb Perrin & Mark Beerse

4 pm  Windblown

5 pm  Herb & Fil

6 pm Smilin’ Gray

7 pm Six Cents

Volunteers with the area TLC office will be on hand throughout the day to share TLC’s mission, accept donations, and plenty of Evening in Swaziland Gala & Silent Auction tickets will be available for purchase throughout the day. (The Gala will be held on Saturday, November 7th at Cedarville University, tickets are $25, $200 per table)

The following Wednesday, September 16, La Rosa’s Pizzeria is hosting a family dinner night out for The Luke Commission.  La Rosa’s will donate 20% of all customer totals that present a TLC flier with their bill.  (Carry out, dine in, and delivery orders apply)  La Rosa’s will accept TLC fliers for benefit from open to close (11 am to 10 pm), so come on out for lunch or dinner, bring your friends, family, co-workers, or even a date!  * The flier (attached via link) is required for TLC to receive the donation from a customer’s bill!

Feel free to share these events with your friends and family.  The Family Violence Prevention Center and The Luke Commission help tens of thousands of women, men, and children every year. Community support is their livelihood!
