Our guest on Morning Line for Our Community is Standing Together Against Rape's (STAR) Development Director, Peter Knape, talking about the Masquerade Ball 2017.
Knape says STAR's mission, is to provide the best quality crisis intervention, education and advocacy services to victims of sexual assault and sexual abuse, and their families and our community. STAR has been around since 1976 - and has grown into a 24-hour crisis and support intervention agency - with a crisis line available all year round including weekends, holidays and at all hours of the day and night.
The Masquerade Ball event is STAR's largest fundraiser of the year:
October 28th, 2017
Knape says this is the 2nd Annual Masquerade Ball and this year's theme is Steampunk.
He says STAR previously held a Tea for the annual fundraiser, but last year marked a change to an evening event, with the first Masquerade Ball having an Edwardian theme.
