Victim Assistance Program will celebrate the 25th Anniversary Mardi Gras Gala March 4. Co-Chairs, Erin Victor and Marissa Pappas, along with their committee, will turn The Tangier in Akron into a fabulous night out on Bourbon Street. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. as cocktails and hors d'oeuvres will be served and guests begin bidding on silent auction items.

Over 400 guests are expected to enjoy an evening complete with an open bar, gourmet sit-down dinner, auctions, raffles, live music by 'The Cover Band' and dancing. The committee has an exciting auction planned for our guests this year!

Victim Assistance Program is pleased to announce that Summit County Prosecutor Sheri Bevan Walsh will be presented with the Bernard I. Rosen Community Service Award, and the Volunteer of the Year Award will be given to the Zonta Club of Hudson for their dedication and generosity to our community.

Tickets to the Mardi Gras Gala are still available and may be purchased before Feb. 15 for $95 per person and $110 beginning Feb. 16. Reservations can be made by calling 330-376-0040, or by visiting victimassistanceprogram.org. Also, sponsorship and advertising opportunities are still available.
