By Beacon Staff

Celebrate 40 years of safety, independence, and empowerment with the Abbie Shelter, the Flathead Valley’s primary service provider for survivors of domestic violence. The Aug. 25 event in Whitefish is ‘70s themed, with music by the New Wave Time Trippers, and costumes are encouraged. Enjoy spectacular food catered by The Cuisine Machine, raffle baskets and live auction. Tickets are $76 each, $140 per couple, or $500 per table. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The 24-hour Violence-Free Crisis Line was founded in 1976, and is named after Abigail Fredericks, a Flathead activist and Quaker. The “line,” as its founding mothers called it, grew into the full-fledged shelter in 1994, and now offers therapeutic services, safety planning, court advocacy, and lodging for those fleeing an abuser.
