2015 was the inaugural year for Dancing with your Community Stars with more than $15,000 raised for the Center. Our 2016 event thrilled us with overwhelming support and raised over $22,000, so we’re planning for another successful year in 2017!
The Children’s Justice Center (CJC) is one of 20 homelike facilities across the state of Utah that serve children and families who are experiencing the crisis and chaos that comes with the disclosure of significant physical or sexual abuse and other crimes involving children such as domestic violence. The Center is designed to help children feel safe and comfortable so they may begin to deal with the difficult and often frightening issues that surround abuse.
Traditionally, investigation of child abuse required many interviews of the child victim by the police, social services, medical personnel, mental health professionals and attorneys. Each interview is now recorded so that these children rarely need to tell their story multiple times.
Please help support the WCCJC by joining us for our 3rd annual Dancing with your Community Stars. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online at www.cjcwc.com, by calling the WCCJC 435-634-1134, or through one of your local Stars! AND…..ALL ticket bearers will be entered in a drawing for a “Star” weekend package for two to see Julianne & Derek Hough’s Move Beyond tour in Las Vegas, including a 2-night stay, 2 tickets to the Linq and luxury transportation to and from Vegas with Amore Transport!
