April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month and National Child Abuse Prevention Month. As a nonprofit with the mission of “protecting children, preserving families,” Arizona’s Children Association works tirelessly across the state to end interpersonal and family violence. We rely heavily on individual and corporate contributions to maintain the quality and efficiency of our programs to help make all our Arizona communities a safer, healthier place to live.
For the past 15 years, local restaurants, businesses, organizations and individuals have united with the Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault in Tucson in a unique and fun community wide experience to support services for survivors of sexual assault and children affected by family violence called “Dine Out for Safety.” Last year, AzCA expanded “Dine Out for Safety” statewide.
Plan to eat out and make a difference on Wednesday, April 20, 2011. Participating restaurants in Tucson, Flagstaff, Prescott and Yuma will generously donate up to 20 percent of their day’s proceeds to support Arizona’s Children Association’s services for survivors of sexual assault and children affected by family violence.
Generous sponsorships of Dine Out for Safety permit all proceeds to be directed to the Arizona's Children Association programs aimed to prevent family violence, child abuse and domestic violence in the community where the funds are raised.
