    The Sertoma Club of Brownsburg will host the 12th annual St. Valentine’s Dinner Dance benefiting Sheltering Wings. The event will be held on Saturday, February 12, 2011 at the new JW Marriott hotel in downtown Indianapolis. This will be the first local charity event held at this facility.

    The evening will begin with a private reception for the event sponsors and their guests, with doors opening to the remaining guests at 6pm with a cocktail time immediately followed by dinner. Heart2Heart will be providing both the reception and dinner music. The evening’s program and live auction will be held from 8-9pm and dancing until midnight with music provided by the Wright Brothers. The silent auction will run throughout the evening. Proceeds generated from the event will benefit the women and children who reside at the shelter.

    Sheltering Wings houses women and children who are actively fleeing domestic violence. Since opening its doors in January of 2002, 887 women and 1,110 children have called the shelter home. Along with the programs the shelter offers to families in crisis they also reach out to the community via presentations, shelter tours, newsletters and resource cards as well as providing a Teen Dating Violence program to area schools and youth groups. Fifty percent of the families living at the shelter come from Hendricks County, thirty percent from Marion County and the remaining twenty percent from surrounding counties and states.

    This will be the tenth year in which the Sertoma Club has hosted the dinner dance solely for Sheltering Wings, with this past February’s attendance nearing 650 guests. ClaimAid Consulting Corporation is the Title Sponsor of this year’s event. The black tie optional gala offers many opportunities for involvement including sponsorship packages, auction donations and event attendance.

    Ticket prices are $150 per couple and can be purchased by calling the shelter at 317.718.0735 or online registration is available at www.shelteringwings.org/dinnerdance.

    The impact of domestic violence on our community has a ripple effect. From our neighbor to our best friend to a family member, someone knows someone affected by domestic violence. Your support will not only help the families at Sheltering Wings but will also help spread the word throughout our community that domestic violence is unacceptable.
