Every 2 seconds someone in the United States is sexually assaulted. It's an appalling statistic and to make it even worse, 70% of those victims are children. The King County Sexual Assault Resource Center (KCSARC) is the *only* provider of rape crisis intervention, legal advocacy support and therapy for survivors of sexual assault in King County, yet every year KCSARC relies on funding from the city, state and individual donors just to keep itself afloat.
Each year, KCSARC holds a 1,000 person breakfast in Seattle. The 2010 "Kids are Our Business" breakfast will be held at the Westin Seattle and is free to attend. This year's speakers will include Molly Shen (KOMO news anchor) and Margo Myers (ex KIRO news anchor). Major sponsors include Expeditors, Group Health, Boeing, Virginia Mason, Nintendo, Puget Sound Energy, Committee for Children and many others. Attendees will come from every major business throughout King County.
Here's how you can get involved:
We are looking for in-kind donors to contribute items to our Table Captain gift bags at the event. By contributing to the gift bags, your business will get to showcase your product/logo in front of over 1000 influential people at far less than the minimum $2,500 sponsorship level. We will need 100 of each item and are also looking for a sponsor to provide the bags themselves.
I became involved with KCSARC because I strongly believe in their mission to "End the Silence" which I think will resonate strongly with the women of the Ladies Who Launch and CRAVE communities. As mothers, daughters, sisters, trendsetters and entrepreneurs, we can support KCSARC with a small in-kind contribution, showcasing our own business to potential investors and customers while standing united against sexual assault in our community. Together we can "End the Silence."
