About the Fundraiser
Join us for the Daughters of Lot Breakfast Fundraiser
Saturday, February 2, 2019
The Daughters of Lot Breakfast is a creative, festive and beautiful fundraising event that raises money for the Samaritan Counseling and Growth Center's Daughters of Lot program. Daughters of Lot is a subsidy program that ensures abuse victims will receive counseling regardless of their financial ability to pay. All proceeds from this fundraising event go to help with the cost of counseling for victims of abuse.
The event includes a delightful breakfast served by area clergy and volunteers, a keynote speaker and fun doorprizes. But what makes Daughters of Lot so unique and special are the beautiful tables individually decorated by local supporters who donate their time year after year. Each table is decorated to the decorator's taste. The table décor can follow the theme, "Hope brings light to darkness", or you can choose your own theme.
Sip & See
This year, we're opening our doors at 9:00 a.m. so that our guests have the opportunity to walk around and look at the beautiful tables. Starbucks has graciously agreed to provide coffee for this pre-fundraiser event, which we're calling "Sip & See". Breakfast and the program will begin at 9:30 a.m. Plan to join us half an hour early to talk with the other guests and enjoy the lovely decorations.
About Daughters of Lot
What We Do
Daughters of Lot is a subsidy program that ensures abuse victims will receive counseling regardless of their financial ability to pay. Samaritan Counseling and Growth Center sets aside the money raised at the Daughters of Lot fund raiser to provide counseling services to victims of abuse in Northeastern Oklahoma and Southeastern Kansas.
Why We Do It
Each year in the US, there are almost a quarter million victims of abuse. Sexual abuse, incest, and rape leave emotional scars that can affect many aspects of the victims life, making it hard to hold a job or maintain healthy relationships.
Victims of abuse are:
- 3 times more likely to suffer from depression.
- 6 times more likely to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder.
- 13 times more likely to abuse alcohol.
- 26 times more likely to abuse drugs.
- 4 times more likely to contemplate suicide.
But the good news is that these symptoms are definitely responsive to treatment. Through counseling, the assault/abuse victim begins to feel less like a victim and more like a survivor. Our goal is to make sure that every single abuse victim has access to treatment.
