Ultraviolet 2018 Fills Guests With Wonder and Delight!

October 12, 2018, over 200 guests gathered at Wisconsin Dance and Cheer with curiosity and excitement to experience Harbor House Domestic Abuse Programs’ first annual Ultraviolet event. Many didn’t know what to expect, but knew they supported our mission. Attendees were awed with sights, tastes, sounds and feels – all to support shining a light for survivors of domestic violence.

Theme of the night was “Collective Brightness” and guests were encouraged to partake in a number of interactive experiences to spread light including; an interactive art display by Dave Razor, glow-in-the dark henna, a black light aerial performance by Cycropia Aerial Dance, a GIANT fund-a-need light bright board and the opportunity to join the “collective brightness” moment as all attendees came together as one to shine a brighter light for domestic violence survivors.

“Giant lite brite, unity band, henna tattoos, T-shirt making, adult-size swing set, aerial performance, food, deserts, drinks, raffles, and a light-out dance party….this was the magic of #Ultraviolet2018. The Harbor House’s fundraiser was an amazing event filled with wonder and delight- we will definitely be going next year!!” – May J Simonis, Ultraviolet attendee

Three takeaways from Ultraviolet 2018:

  1. We all have a light
  2. We shine brighter when we come together
  3. You are never to old to enjoy having fun

Everything about the night was truly magical and more than we could have ever dreamed for. We were thrilled to have raised over $40,000 to shine a light for survivors of domestic violence! We can not wait to see what Ultraviolet 2019 will bring! Be sure to mark your calendars, Ultraviolet 2019 will be Friday, October 11!

“Tonight was nothing short of amazing!! Congrats Harbor House for pulling off a life-changing, art-infused event!! Anyone can shove people into a hotel conference room, serve excess appetizers and auction off vacation packages to raise money… but these folks managed to export us all to a far away glow-in-the-dark land of mystique and music…. nicely done!!” – Rochelle Isaacson, Ultraviolet attendee
