Yellowstone National Park

 

       
       
 

Each year on the last Saturday in January the Center for Abuse and Rape Emergencies presents the C.A.R.E. Ball.  The 2011 event Hooray for Hollywood, featured Grace Kelly's car from High Society and comedian Joan Rivers.  In truth, both car and Joan were impersonators.

 

 

 
Entering the Charlotte Harbor Event Center on the red carpet, guests found libations, a silent auction and hors d' oeuvres followed by a full dinner with music and dancing.
       
 

C.A.R.E. volunteers work over 13 thousand hours a year to staff domestic violence and sexual assault hotlines, provide civil legal assistance, crisis counseling, family sheltering, hospital response, crime compensation, with school and community presentations.

 

 

 

Since its beginning in 1983, C.A.R.E. has grown to operate a certified domestic violence shelter, a transition home in cooperation with Habitat for Humanity and in partnership with county environmental services, two reuse centers, helping keep usable items out of landfills.
