LIGHTING THE PATH TO HEALING

Harbor House’s Calumet County Outreach Program to host its Annual Candlelight Vigil live on Facebook

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 29th, 2020

CHILTON, WI – The community is invited to participate in Harbor House’s Annual Calumet County Candlelight Vigil on Thursday, October 1, 2020. The evening’s events will begin at 6:30 pm. The community is invited to join in and ‘attend’ the event by streaming the event live on Facebook.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. It is a month in which we take time to honor and remember individuals who have lost their lives or have had their lives dramatically impacted by domestic violence. Organized through its Calumet County Outreach Program, Harbor House’s Candlelight Vigil provides the community an opportunity to come together to create awareness of domestic violence.

“This event is about lifting up the voices of survivors, honoring those who lost their lives to domestic abuse, and to shine a light for those who have not yet reached out for support,” stated Melissa Giebel, Harbor House’s Calumet County Outreach Coordinator.

This year’s event will feature live music, an invocation/benediction, community speakers, a survivor speaker, and a candle-lighting ceremony to honor and remember individuals we have lost to domestic abuse.

The community can be involved in this event from the comfort of home by:

  • Visiting Harbor House Domestic Abuse Program’s Facebook page and click ‘going’ on the Candlelight Vigil event
  • Share our candlelight image on social media to shine your light for survivors who have lost their lives to domestic abuse.
  • Share this information with your friends, family and community.
