We would like to thank Servus Credit Union for once again being the Title Sponsor for our annual Valentine’s themed fundraising and awareness event, now called “We Believe: A benefit for SACE”.

Thank you Servus Credit Union, for partnering with us to help shift the climate of silence and shame that surrounds the issue of sexual abuse and assault to one of hope, healing and support. By demonstrating your commitment to standing up against this crime which affects so many, and to honouring the strength and resiliency of survivors, you are showing the Edmonton community your willingness to get in front of an issue that has for too long been shrouded in secrecy, blame, and guilt.

The Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton (SACE) is pleased to invite the community to join us for an evening of awareness raising, hope and healing. On Wednesday, February 10, SACE, together with our Title Sponsor, Servus Credit Union, is hosting We Believe: A benefit for SACE, a Valentine’s themed fundraising event, at the Chateau Lacombe Hotel. The evening will include a reception with live pianist vocal performance, plated dinner, silent and live auctions. We are pleased, once again, to collaborate on this event with our Honourary Chair, Sarah Chan, wife of Mayor Don Iveson. We are also very proud to announce that Sheldon Kennedy will be our special guest speaker. Sheldon, a former NHL player, philanthropist, and author of Why I Didn’t Say Anything: The Sheldon Kennedy Story, will share his own story and message, centered on the impact and power of the three simple words: I BELIEVE YOU.

 

We Believe is an opportunity for our community to come together to demonstrate our commitment to standing up against this crime which affects so many, and to honour the strength and resiliency of survivors. We are confident that this third annual event will be one that will not soon be forgotten, and expect a capacity crowd. All of the revenue generated will be directed to increasing client services, reducing wait times, and providing public education in Edmonton and its surrounding communities.

 

We Believe in a world where sexual violence is not tolerated, where survivors are celebrated for their strength and resiliency, and where everyone is actively working towards a future without sexual violence. Please help us make this dream a reality by supporting this event and by telling survivors #IBelieveYou. When survivors are supported, healing is absolutely possible. We can all do something. Together, the change we create will do much more than improve the lives of survivors. It will allow us to grow and thrive as a community, because a strong community is one that does not leave anyone behind.

 

Listen. Believe. Support.­

We can all do something.
