House Party 2019: Imagine a Day...
November 2, 2019
Downtown Marriott | 5:30-10pm
Take a moment with us to imagine a day… where the residents’ rooms remain empty, of all but small traces of the families and cherished belongings that once filled them. Imagine a day… where the dining hall is clear, with no drawings lining the walls but echoes of chatter from those who once filled the seats. Imagine a day…where the playground no longer bustles with the sounds of children playing, forgetting the worries of a life they have had to leave behind. Imagine a day... where domestic violence isn't commonplace, pain is a thing of the past and Newhouse is no longer needed. We dream of that day. Together, we can build a stronger tomorrow.
This annual signature event, House Party, will begin at 5:30pm, with auction preview, live music and bar service. Lively entertainment will be provided by Missy Koonce who will also emcee and guests will enjoy chef crafted plated dinner. LIVE auctions will include unique experience items and there is something for everyone in the silent auction.
Newhouse fills a community need as a safe haven for those fleeing the immediate threat of domestic violence. With assistance from local law enforcement, each year the staff welcomes more than 500 women, men and children, often with nothing more than the clothes they are wearing. Newhouse provides for their immediate physical needs of food, clothing and shelter, as well as comprehensive counseling to meet their serious emotional and physiological needs.
