Beacon of Hope hosting breakfast

(Continued)

The event will feature a breakfast buffet, guest speakers, door prizes, and a raffle drawing. Among the items as prizes is a stay at the Renaissance Hotel in Indianapolis and breakfast the morning after.

Lindsay Crane of K-Love radio in Indianapolis will emcee the event as the breakfast’s media sponsor, and Moore said she expects those who attend will be moved.

“We’re going to be showing our brand new video that is very impactful, and we’ll be having one of our victims speak on how BOH has transferred her life. Then I’ll be speaking on the progress and where we’re headed in the future,” Moore said. “(The reaction to the breakfast) has been very encouraging. The company tables are already coming in, and I really hope the community supports us by coming out to this event.”

Moore said that thus far, 2013 has seen huge gains in the realm of teen domestic violence through its teen talks program, visiting schools and educating about the perils of abuse in relationships and how surprisingly prevalent they are with young people.

“That’s been one of our main progresses so far,” Moore said. “We’ll be sharing all about that new program at the breakfast. One in every three teens is reporting domestic violence in a teen dating situation. It could be happening to anyone, and by coming to this breakfast, they’ll be able to learn more about awareness and how to help when the need arises.”

Moore said the teen dating violence issue in particular should hit home to businesses, because many of them employ young people and there can be definite signs employers can learn to notice that are harbingers of potential abuse in a dating relationship.

“Domestic violence is a community-wide problem, and everyone must get involved if we’re going to see it end in our city,” she said.

Anyone interested in attending the breakfast may call the center to reserve a seat at 731-6131. The Country Club of Indianapolis is at 2801 Country Club Road.
