Dione Cosmetics presents You Are Magnificent a fund raiser for SART
Alisha Anderson of Dione Cosmetics organized a fun night at the Lily Lake Pavillion to raise funds for the Saint John Sexual Assault Response Team.
The funds raised will assist with summer programming for local young women who struggle with self-esteem and making healthy choices. There is no better weapon to fight sexual assault than to build the confidence of young women in our community.
Last year’s programs were filled with education and fun activities, this year will be similar. Young women will attend full day programming that will include all meals and snacks. There will be guest speakers from the Sexual Health Centre, Domestic Violence Outreach, Public Health, etc. The young women will travel to Cineplex Theatres to watch a film, create personal pieces of art, and participate in other fun activities.
The connections made during these programs last much longer than the week long duration. High school is a trying time and any extra support is beneficial. High school is easier to navigate for women with confidence in themselves, who believe that they deserve to be healthy and happy. Our programs are designed to increase self- esteem and give young women an understanding of healthy relationships and healthy boundaries.
