It’s not too late to purchase your tickets for the revitalized Safe Berks Celebration of Peace event being held on Tuesday, Feb. 20, 2024, at the DoubleTree by Hilton at Reading. The keynote speaker, Troy Vincent Sr., is a former Philadelphia Eagle, current NFL EVP of Football Operations, and a vital national advocate against domestic violence. A special MVP ticketed meet and greet with Vincent will begin at 5 p.m., with general admission beginning at 6 p.m. To purchase your ticket, please visit www.SafeBerks.org and click on the Celebration of Peace graphic found on the home page.
Safe Berks will have food stations, a cash bar, and raffle items. Live and silent auction items will also be available, including but not limited to, two Southwest Airline tickets, an autographed Darius Slay jersey, an autographed Philadelphia Eagles helmet, a wheelbarrow full of top shelf alcohol, a private suite at the Santander Arena for the Stained concert and much more! A local survivor will share their story and discuss how Safe Berks support services helped to save their life.
Funds raised from the Celebration of Peace will help Safe Berks house additional survivors and continue providing uninterrupted lifesaving support services. “Domestic violence and sexual assault are issues faced by all of us … the day (my mother) left my stepdad, I promised her I would never stop fighting for her and other victims of abuse,” stated Vincent.
Beth Garrigan, Safe Berks CEO, could not agree more. “Domestic violence and sexual assault do not discriminate. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by these issues and Safe Berks is here to assist survivors, their children, and/or loved ones,” said Garrigan.
