50 Years of Centering Survivors: A Celebration with RACES
is approaching fast and we’re making preparations.
Don’t miss out!
The big day may have come and gone, but keep in touch as we’re always up to something new and exciting.
As Illinois' oldest rape crisis center, we invite you to celebrate the many who have come together through a half century of organizing, advocating, and working towards a world free of sexual violence. Our golden anniversary will be hosted on Wednesday, November 9th from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. at Riggs Beer Company Taproom and Beergarden. The Celebration will include heavy appetizers and desserts, entertainment, a live and silent auction, and more!
