Event Details

Braddock District Supervisor John C. Cook invites you to join him in his fight against domestic violence by raising funds for two amazing local charities, Artemis House and Fairfax CASA.

Domestic violence is the number one cause of injury to women, more than car accidents, muggings, and rape combined. And here in Fairfax County domestic violence is the number one cause of homicide. Children too suffer from domestic violence, with many baring emotional and physical scars from abusive parents. What's worse is that children who suffer from domestic abuse are twice as likely to then abuse their own spouses and children.

About the charities:

Fairfax CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocates, is dedicated to helping children navigate the confusing and scary aftermath of domestic violence. So many things are changing for a child -- his or her home, school, guardians -- that having a single dedicated advocate to help with the transitions can make a huge difference when it's most important. CASA finds and trains people who can be rocks of stability for children during times of change.

Artemis House serves as a shelter for women and children escaping dangerous domestic situations. It is an essential barrier for those who might end up on the street otherwise. 

About the event:

There will be food, music, and fundraising. Kilroy's has generously volunteered to donate 10% of food proceeds to the cause. There will also be raffle items and chances to donate directly.
