Hope Haven Family Shelter to celebrate 20th

. ..On Oct. 15, 2015, Hope Haven, Cass County’s women’s and children’s shelter, will host a gala in honor of 20 years of providing shelter and other services to victims of sexual assault and domestic abuse in Cass County. The gala will be held at Memorial Station in Memorial Park in Belton. The event is hosted by the Belton Parks and Recreation Department.
. ..The Hope Haven Board of Directors has sold tables of eight for the evening. They expect approximately 200 guests will attend.
. ..The theme for the gala is “You Are The Magic.” The current board realizes that without the Harrisonville Business and Professional Business Women's Club’s, (now known as the Harrisonville and Cass County Business Women’s Club), vision for Hope Haven in 1992 this event would not be possible.
. ..Early in 1991, members of Harrisonville Business Women’s club attended a workshop on domestic violence and its impact on families and communities. Realizing that Cass County was without services for battered women and their children, the organization took on the task of bringing a shelter to Cass County.
. ..In April, 1992, the women hosted an informational meeting at Cass Medical Center, which was attended by 120 interested Cass County citizens. From that meeting, the first Board of Directors was established in January, 1993, and the ground breaking began June 5, 1994.
. ..Since Hope Haven opened its doors on August 1, 1995, over 14,000 victims have been served. Now 20 years later, Hope Haven’s Board will begin the Gala at 6 p.m. with cocktails and a silent auction.
. ..Charlie Jennings, Executive Director of Hope Haven, will welcome guests and give information about Hope Haven. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m., with a live auction following. Auctioneers for the evening are Kent Jursch and Kevin Iseman.
. ..Currently serving as Board of Directors are Sandy Clutter, president; Becky Oliver, vice president; Amy Schmoll, secretary; Rachel Jacobson, treasurer; Lynn Lafoon, member at large and Connie Robertson, Amber Branson, Dr. Nalini Tella, Annette Griggs, Linnette Pugh, David Miranda, E.J. Feeback, Randy Grimm and Leo Anderson, board members.
. ..The board plans to make the Gala an annual event.
. ..Anyone interested in supporting Hope Haven can follow events on Twitter and Facebook. Donations may be sent to Hope Haven, PO Box 754, Harrisinville, MO 64701.
. ..The board appreciates all financial and physical support.
There are openings for volunteers to serve. Learn more about these positions by contacting the Director at 380-2833.
