Amberly’s Place has kicked off Week in Paradise, which raises funds to help Yuma County abuse victims with emergency needs.
“This is our largest fundraiser of the year, and we are grateful for our sponsors and all who buy tickets in support of Amberly’s Place. As we face these funding cuts, this fundraiser is more important than ever,” Executive Director Tori Bourguignon said.
Amberly’s Place is facing a “significant” cut to its Victims of Crime Act funding, which has historically been the largest and most stable funding source for the center.
The early bird drawing will take place Saturday, May 6, at 6 p.m. at the Z Fun Factory and Waylon’s Water Park, 4446 E. County 10th St. The big drawing will take place June 3 at 11 a.m. at the Fun Factory. Ticket holders do not need to be present to win.
Each $10 ticket gives ticket holders the opportunity to win 10 different travel packages and provides entry into Waylon’s Water Park on the morning of the big drawing from 9-11 a.m. One ticket per person is required for entry. Once a person has entered, they will receive a bracelet so they may enjoy the water park and features all day. Entry will be on a first-come, first-served basis with a maximum capacity of 1,000 individuals.
Tickets are available for purchase at AEA Federal Credit Union or Amberly’s Place Thrift Shoppe, from any Amberly’s Place board member or staff member or online at www.amberlysplace.com.
