Dear Friend of Promise Place,

Promise Place is inviting you to be a part of our May 17th fundraiser called Chocolate Explosion. This fundraiser will allow your business to showcase your chocolate goods to the public and at the same time help Promise Place to raise money towards our domestic violence shelter for women and children. It will be held at the Hollingsworth House on Hwy 54 in Fayetteville between the hours of 1pm and 7 pm.

Promise Place is a non-profit agency that provides domestic violence services to victims of domestic violence and their children. These services include legal advocacy, support groups, 24 hr crisis counseling, teen dating violence prevention program in the high schools, emergency shelter and emergency needs assistance.

In May of 2007, Promise Place was pleased to open up an emergency domestic violence
shelter. This shelter helps women and children escape the violence and provides a safe and confidential environment in which they can gain the tools to rebuild their lives. As you can imagine, there are many costs incurred with providing services and all the proceeds from this Chocolate Explosion will go directly towards paying off the mortgage on the shelter.

At the end of December 2007, Promise Place had provided a safe place of refuge to 97 women and children. One former resident stated, “I was afraid of coming into a shelter because I had all these images in my mind from what you see on television, but when my husband told me he was going to kill me and I found a gun in the house I had no choice but to find a safe place for me and my baby. I came into the shelter with nothing. Promise Place welcomed us in. They helped us start a new life.”

You can help make a difference by donating your best chocolate goods to this event. We are looking for everything chocolate from cakes and fudge to mousse and fancy pastries. If you choose, you can also make a financial donation to go directly towards our fundraising goal. All donations are tax-deductible. Thank you very much for your support.
