[KHTS] – Santa Clarita Valley residents helped raise more than $3,000 for the fight against domestic violence at the third annual Fairy Berry Breakfast on May 16 at Heritage Junction Historic Park, officials said.
“We’re very grateful for the community and how they came and helped support our cause and our shelter,” said Tiffany Suwa, who manages the office for the Domestic Violence Center of the Santa Clarita Valley.
The event brought together family members of all ages, Suwa said, with Star Wars characters and Disney princesses part of the entertainment for children, in addition to music, breakfast and face-painting for everyone.
Now, Domestic Violence Center of Santa Clarita Valley officials are already gearing up for their Dance Party event in July, Suwa said.
As a promotion of the center’s involvement with the nonprofit Dancing With Our Stars event, the second annual Dance Party invites the community to the Elks Lodge in Santa Clarita.
At the July 18 Dance Party, which is open to the public, trained instructors will teach a few different dances, and then the fun really gets under way, said Linda Davies, executive director for the Domestic Violence Center of the Santa Clarita Valley.
Last year, participants enjoyed the tango, country line dancing, tap courtesy of Marsha McLean, who represented the center, and the waltz. This year, Sally Van Swearingen will be dancing for the center, Davies said.
