25,000 people from our area get help from Family Support Services.
“We offer domestic violence and sexual assault intervention and prevention and that includes the safe house shelter, we do veteran resources including housing, jobs, basic needs, all kinds of services they need for counseling, equine therapy, we have family strengthening programs that are in the homes and in the schools, we do violence prevention coordination than we do affordable counseling,” said Joette Campbell, with Family Support Services.
The majority of their services are provided to families and victims in need, at no cost.
That’s why they rely so heavily on the Harley Party to bring in funds.
“It is our biggest fundraiser. We’ve got so many new programs that we have going on and we’ve had some funding cut, which I think everybody has, so it is important that this continues to grow and sell out,” said Cheryl Stallings, the co-chair for the party.
This will be the 23rd year for the annual Harley Party and fun run.
Tickets are $80.
Along with the money going to a good cause, Campbell says the money gets you a whole night of fun and the chance to win your own Harley.
“Once you pay your $80 that gets two people into the party, that includes all their food and beverages, plus a chance to win the bike or the cash, and another chance to win $1000,” said Campbell.
Stallings says buying tickets will help so many people here on the High Plains.
“We are strong in the schools with the families, the vet center is growing, we’ve added a lot there, domestic violence we are at capacity most of the time. I just can’t go on enough how important this fundraiser is for Family Support Services,” added Stallings.
The Harley Party is Saturday, July 29th.
It will take place on Polk Street between 10th and 12th.
Tickets are $80.
That will get two people into the party.
There will be live music, food, beverages, vendor booths and of course the chance to win a 2017 Road King S.
