Sponsor Our Evening with Elizabeth Smart

Dear Community Ally,

The abduction of Elizabeth Smart captured the attention of our nation. As search parties combed Salt Lake City and its surrounding area, the country held its breath. Where was she? Nine months later, the nation celebrated her rescue and closely-followed the trial that ensued. Since her abduction, Elizabeth has been on a mission to inspire survivors of sexual assault across the world with a powerful and clear message: There is life after sexual assault;Where There’s Hope, There’s Healing.

We at Our VOICE are honored to bring Elizabeth Smart to Asheville on March 8th, International Women’s Day, for a ticketed special event, “Where There’s Hope, There’s Healing,” held at A-B Tech, where she will share her story with the community, focusing on healing, hope and personal transformation after sexual assault. We invite you to be a part of this occasion by becoming a Smart Sponsor.

As an agency Our VOICE is dedicated to supporting victims of rape, sexual violence and human trafficking, and we believe that no one should be alone during a time of crisis. We offer a 24/7 crisis line, hospital accompaniment, advocacy, and free counseling sessions for all people in our community who have been impacted by sexual violence. Through outreach and prevention education in schools across the region, we facilitate vital classroom discussions about respect, boundaries, safe dating, and consent. Our VOICE curriculums aim to prevent sexual violence from happening in the first place.

We are currently seeking financial support to underwrite all expenses involved with this event. Please review this package and contact us with any questions. We hope you’ll join us in the fight to end sexual violence in our community by sponsoring Elizabeth Smart’s Asheville address. If we are able to underwrite the costs of this event, then we’ll be able to offer discounted tickets to under-severed communities in our city and county.

It has now been fifteen years since Elizabeth’s abduction, and we invite you to be a part of this special event recognizing her incredible journey as a survivor. We would be honored to have you as community partner standing beside us and we thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Angélica Reza Wind
Executive Director
