A Night for the Sanctuary!
Australia is in the grip of devastating statistics relating to Domestic Violence against women. ** 1 in 4 women has experienced emotional or physical abuse by a current or former partner from the age of 15 ** !! These statistics on Domestic Violence and emotional abuse demonstrate the prevalence and severity of violence against women in Australia.
Future Females Gold Coast and Miss Diamond International Finalist, Shannen Simmons, have combined forces to host a fundraising event to raise money for this much needed cause.
Shannen Simmons is a local Gold Coast mum of four, business owner and a grand finalist in the Miss Diamond International beauty pageant. Shannen is determined to raise awareness for The Sanctuary which is a privately funded refuge that supports woman, children, and pets escaping domestic violence. The Sanctuary relies heavily on the generous donations and support from the Gold Coast community at large. @miss_diamond_fianalist_2021 @thesanctuaryrefuge
