Fall Fundraisers are Here

Posted by on Aug 21, 2016 in of Help |

We have a few great opportunities to support CFVC in some really fun and unique ways this fall.

We hope you will consider participating in one, two or (even better) all three of these fantastic fundraisers:

After the success of our last Poker Run, we have decided to have another this Fall, so plan to join us on September 17th!

Tickets can be purchased here for $30 per rider and $10 per passenger.  More information and updates will be posted here.

Our friends at Straight Edge Tattoo are planning something special for September — they plan to donate 20% of the proceeds from their services to us.

If you have been waiting for a little extra push to go get the tattoo of your dreams, this is your chance!

Visit Straight Edge‘s talented artists at their shop in Woodstock  during September, and you will be supporting CFVC too.

Are you Ready for the Poker Run?

Posted by on Apr 29, 2016 in of Hope |

Poker Run 2Tomorrow is the big day – the Poker Run rolls out of Woodstock starting at 9AM!

We are excited to hear that so many of our supporters are planning to attend.  If you did not make the cutoff for pre-registration, you can sign up for the event onsite.  Vehicles are $20 and the driver’s additional passengers will be $15 each.  You can also purchase an extra hand of poker for $10 if you want to increase your odds of winning the cash prize.  That’s right – the high hand of the day gets a cash prize!

If you have not attended a poker run before, the premise is that you are building a hand of poker as you move along the route.  At each stop along the route, you draw a playing card until you complete your hand of poker. What makes it extra fun is that the riders do not know where they are headed until they progress to the next stop – it is a bit like a scavenger hunt.

Thanks to our sponsor Sheriff Roger Garrison Charities along with our Board of Directors, we have many great door prizes and raffle items including a NASCAR Driving Experience, a YETI cooler (thank you Freedom Powersports!) painting class, jewelry and gift cards.  We will also have tshirts and some memorabilia available for purchase at the ride.

We hope that you will join us at the ride tomorrow and bring a friend or two along for the fun!  Just checkout our information page for additional details: cfvc.org/poker-run

Moss Family Chiropractic Plays Secret Santa

Moss Family Chiropractic delivered tons of toys and funds collected from their patients to our office on 12/21/15. They are pictured here with Brooke Larson, CFVC’s Family Support Coordinator.

Our friends from Moss Family Chiropractic came by the office yesterday with a major haul of presents for the children in our program.  Christmas can be a tough time of year for many of the children living in our shelter and transitional housing, as their families make strides to be free from abuse.  With support from our community partners, like Moss Family Chiropractic, the stress of the holiday season is lessened.  With more than 150 children of all ages residing in our transitional housing development, we were very excited to see that the Moss Family Chiropractic staff highlighted our teens when they went shopping.  Patients at their office donated toys and funds towards the toy drive and they also delivered additional direct donations from their patients to support CFVC’s programs.  Thank you to Moss Family Chiropractic for your generous donation just in time for Christmas!

Nominate CFVC for #SweetwaterGives

Posted by on Dec 16, 2015 in of Hope | 0 comments

We bet you didn’t know we were on instagram — well, as of a couple of weeks ago, you can now get quick updates about what we are doing at Cherokee Family Violence Center there too.  You can find us @CFVCinfo! We are excited to be spreading the word about our programs on a new platform, and hope you will help us get off to a great start there.  A little birdie told us that our friends at SweetWater Brewing Company were giving away some of their hard earned holiday money to deserving charities and we hope you will consider telling them about us.  All you have to do is post a picture on social media and include a quick note of why you support CFVC and then use the hashtag #SweetWaterGives.  If you’re more old school, you can also email them at gives@sweetwaterbrew.com.  We are going to be picking some of our favorite posts that mention CFVC and will send out some CFVC koozies, so be creative!

Remember you can post about #SweetWaterGives on any social media networks, but make sure to tag us on facebook, twitter, and now instagram!
