A successful carnival

Tuesday, May 28, 2019

Community Advocates Ready to Empower Survivors (CARES) would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the following businesses and individuals for their generous sponsorships and donations for our 3rd Annual Carnival on April 27. Our wonderful donors and volunteers made it a successful event.

Despite the adverse weather, we had a great carnival, with over 400 people in attendance and raised more this year than in the past. All for a good cause Family Crisis Centers (FCC) and the Centers Against Abuse and Sexual Assault (CAASA). These funds will help survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse in our county.

A special thanks to the Spirit Lake Police Department, "Officer McGruff," and Dickinson County Sexual Abuse Response Team and many local groups who made this day a great success. Thank you very much to all involved for the tremendous effort and work, and the terrific community support.
