Salsa Sizzle raises $32,000 for CAMO
WOOSTER, Ohio – The night was filled with live Latin Jazz music, Latin-inspired food, a bartending competition and live and silent auctions. Nearly 200 people attended the Salsa Sizzle on Aug. 22, which raised about $32,000. Proceeds benefit the Domestic Violence Shelter for women and children in Santa Rosa de Copán, Honduras.
CAMO built and inaugurated Casa Hogar, the first domestic violence shelter in Western Honduras, in April 2010. The shelter provides 24/7 protective care with the goal of preventing deaths caused by domestic violence. To date, more than 600 women and children have received protection and support services from this shelter. Casa Hogar also provides therapy opportunities for women to heal from physical and emotional wounds as well as educational opportunities for women to learn about and identify abuse in the future.
