Fundraiser for Programs to Help Victims of Abuse

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

Angela's Piazza will hold their second annual Hats Off High Tea fundraiser on Sunday. Angela's Piazza is a local organization that serves women who have been victims of domestic violence and addiction. Proceeds from the fundraiser will go to funding programs the organization runs.

Angela's Piazza served 600 women in 2012, and at least 2000 women since opening in 1998.

Assistant Director Amy Aguirre says, "Our services are critical to supporting women who are marginalized in general, but definitely who have suffered through abusive relationships. Who are struggling, trying to stay clean and sober, but can't get the services they need."

The fundraiser is open to all women. It will be held at the Lake Hills Clubhouse from 1 PM to 3 PM. It will include finger foods, tea, a hat judging contest, and a silent auction. Tickets can be purchased for $45. To get tickets, you can call 255-0611.

They actually take a lot of coordination between different agencies."We try to work very hard to coordinate that," says Carmen Thomason, wh...
