The Coalition Against Rape and Domestic Violence serves an average of 50-60 women a month in Callaway County, providing services ranging from counseling and court advocacy to emergency intervention assistance.
On Aug. 27, CARDV is partnering with Brooklyn Pizza in Fulton to raise money to help the agency continue to provide those services.
Brooklyn Pizza has pledged 10 percent of all dine-in sales to customers presenting a special ticket that day to CARDV. Tickets are available at the CARDV website at callawaycardv.org.
CARDV Board member Jeff Harding said Brooklyn Pizza owner Brian Atkins approached the organization with the fundraising opportunity, “so we took him up on the offer.”
Harding said there is no set goal for an amount to raise, but added he is hoping for a large turnout for the cause.
“The whole point of CARDV is to help victims in abusive relationships,” he said. “It’s a fantastic organization, and we need funding to do what we do.”
