Voices”, silent auction, and door prizes throughout
This is a gala celebration you won’t want to miss! Advanced

up at Zions Bank, Norm’s Barbershop, Arches Book Co,
Seekhaven Resource Center, and are available from any board

seating we encourage early ticket purchase. 100% of all the
proceeds go to benefit Seekhaven.
Domestic violence continues to plague our community and make
the highly held values of freedom, self-determination, and
independence nonexistent for many of our citizens. Such violence
affects us at every level of our society, taxing the cost and
availability of medical, legal, law enforcement, and social
service delivery systems. Businesses, large and small, are
impacted by increased insurance fees and employee lost time
and productivity expenses. Family and intimate violence can
no longer exist behind closed doors veiled in secrecy and shame.
2008 will be a year of community education and involvement.
More than ever, we are relying on you, the citizens of Grand
County to help us increase awareness and education regarding
domestic violence. Living in a world that is faced with such
turmoil can at times seem overwhelming and leave each of us
feeling that there is not much any one person can do. Here
at Seekhaven we believe that changes can and do most often
occur at the ground level, within our homes, our neighborhoods,
our town. We know the difference that even one person can make
in the lives of many. Seekhaven strives to be the type of facility
that is committed to its responsibility to achieve the spirit
of its mission statement.
Seekhaven is committed to building safe and healthy communities
1.Shelter and Resources for families in crisis and
victims of violence.
2.Preventative education for youth and community members.
Seekhaven will continue to provide the types of services
that will make a difference in the lives of those impacted
by all forms of violence. We need to keep acting with the
assurance that each one of us can make a positive difference
in our community—because at the end of the day, that
single first step is what changes lives. Take that first
step with us February 9th at Moab’s Valentines Day
weekend extravaganza, “PUTTIN’ ON THE RITZ”.
