To the Editor:

The Board of Project Against Violent Encounters (PAVE) would like to extend deepest gratitude to those who assisted in putting on the fundraiser on Oct. 12 at The Elks Lodge in Bennington. A huge thanks to the Barr Charitable Trust in honor of Pat and Marie Barr for their generosity in providing the funds for the musical entertainment of the wildly talented Julie Shea Band. We would also like to say thank you to the Elks Lodge for allowing us the use of their space for the event. And of course we are so grateful for the Julie Shea Band for providing the music for all of our attendees to dance to throughout the evening. We say a resounding thank you to all of our attendees! We hope you had as much fun as we did dancing the night away!

Thanks to everyone's support, we were able to raise over $1,700 for PAVE to use towards their programs and services. PAVE's mission is to end domestic and sexual violence and to provide supportive and educational services to individuals, families, and community. PAVE provides to Bennington County a 24-hour hotline, emergency housing, school based violence prevention, and family access and visitation for our community.

We thank you all for being a part of this important fundraiser. We wouldn't have been successful without you!

Dara Zink, of behalf of the PAVE board,
