Local jewelry makes a great holiday gift (and it’s nearly time to start filling Santa's sack). Sure, there are dozens of craft fairs this time of year, but why not do some good while you do your shopping? Our VOICE, the Buncombe County Rape Crisis and Prevention Center, has a unique way to cross things off your list this year.
More than 100 pieces of jewelry will be on display at Pack Place and all you have to do is pick out your favorite. Much like the Empty Bowls project, W.E.A.R. Asheville encourages the public to take home a piece of jewelry in exchange for an entrance fee while mingling with other like-minded citizens. Desserts and warm drinks will be served, giving the event a party atmosphere.
Our VOICE offers free counseling and case management to sexual assault survivors and their families. The organization also has a rape crisis line and provides education and outreach. Our VOICE is known for their fun fundraisers and their annual Walk a Mile in Her Shoes walk is always a lighthearted way to raise money and awareness. W.E.A.R. Asheville (which stands for We Each Are Responsible for preventing sexual violence) is sure to be equally enjoyable. So get your holiday shopping off to an altruistic start while celebrating Our VOICE's good work in the community.
