It is with regret that the Carteret County Domestic Violence Program must announce that we will not be holding our traditional Luncheon and Fashion Show in November. Due to the current restrictions in place and the uncertainty of a second outbreak of the COVID 19 Virus, we feel it is best to cancel this year's event. Unfortunately, this need to cancel will create a hardship for the agency as this event is our biggest fundraiser of the year. Our Board of Directors has taken this all into consideration and have decided to hold a SHOP, SAVOR AND SIP NO SHOW fundraiser to try to recoup some of the loss of income normally raised through this event.
We would like to ask you to continue to support us during this difficult time by offering a donation to our SHOP, SAVOR AND SIP NO SHOW fundraiser that will take place during October for Domestic Violence Awareness Month and end November 15,2020. To support this event we are asking that if you normally purchase a ticket to our event we ask that you make a donation in the amount you would normally spend on a ticket, if you sponsor the event, we ask that you sponsor our SHOP, SAVOR AND SIP NO SHOW fundraiser this year as well, and if you normally contribute a silent auction item then we ask that you make a monetary donation in the dollar value of your normal donated item. Contributions in any amount will be gratefully accepted.
We hope you will join us in making our SHOP, SAVOR AND SIP NO SHOW fundraiser a success for our agency this year. Individuals and businesses that choose to contribute will be displayed in the Carteret News-Times on November 22, 2020as our way of saying thank you for your support. Contributors will be shared on our Facebook page as well. Thank you in advance for your support.

The Carteret County Domestic Violence Program would like to take this opportunity to thank the SECU Foundation for ongoing support. The SECU Foundation has awarded the Carteret County Domestic Violence Program’s SAFE Shelter with a general-purpose grant in the amount of $100,000.00 for the purpose of providing the shelter with COVID-19 relief and operational support. We are deeply grateful for this gift which will enable us to continue to provide safe shelter and support to victims of domestic violence and their families over the coming months. These funds will help to offset revenue lost due to reduced fund - raising capabilities and the temporary closing and reduced revenues to our thrift store during the pandemic. It is anticipated that the need for services for domestic violence survivors will greatly increase due to the hardships brought about by this pandemic. We are extremely fortunate to have this partnership with the SECU Foundation and grateful to have the ability to maintain the current level of service for our clients.
