Rising out of the Ashes fundraiser for Humboldt Domestic Violence Services (HDVS).

As most probably know, the HDVS: Humboldt Domestic Violence Services safe house in Arcata burned down. We did not have enough insurance to cover for the losses, so we are holding a special fundraiser on Saturday, May 10th at the Warfinger Building from 6:00 to 10:30pm. There will be food from Avalon, Bless my Soul Cafe, Curly's and Granada's. Beverages are tentatively provided by the CO-OP, Lost Coast Brewery and River Bend Winery. Entertainment will hopefully include Karen Dumont, a Jazz Trio, Shoshana and The Monster Women. The cost will be an absurdly low $25 per person and $45 per couple pre paid, or $30 at the door. Please help the HDVS recover from this setback.

PS: Always looking for community members to serve on the board of directors. Call 443-6042 for more information.

Not enough insurance? Good planning!

How short was your insurance coverage? How much money needs to be raised to make up the difference?

6:10pm-Our last resource meeting that we touched on that subject staff was still taking inventory of the losses. Not determined yet as far as I know. There has been limited access as far as I have been told. 6 bedroom house and staff area fully furnished and functional. The HDVS were just renters of the house.
