12th Annual Purses with a Purpose Luncheon
The “Purses with a Purpose” luncheon, a major fund raiser for Serene Harbor Domestic Violence Center, will be held at the Hilton Melbourne Rialto Place on October 13th from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. The luncheon features a live auction of new designer purses, silent auction, raffles, vendors and guest speaker Melissa Dohme Hill, a domestic violence survivor.
“Melissa is a true inspiration asset to the domestic violence prevention community,” states Beverly DeMeyer, Director of Marketing. She will share her story, offer information for survivors of domestic violence, and educate others on how they can help. She has shared her story with thousands of people, speaking at various domestic violence events, conferences, high schools, and colleges. Hill has been featured in national and international publications and television shows, including: People Magazine, 48 HOURS “Live to Tell”, Inside Edition, Good Morning America, Today Show, BBC News, Fox News, CNN and many more.
There is a happy ending to Hill’s story: in March of 2016 she married one of the EMT’s who helped save her life.
“All money raised during this fundraising event goes directly to the survivors we support and the programs and services we offer,” assures DeMeyer.
