COMTREA Garden Party Gala Raises Money for A Safe Place

(Jefferson County) After taking a two year hiatus due to COVID-19, COMTREA was able to host its annual fundraiser, benefiting A Safe Place domestic violence shelter, this past Saturday.

The event use to be celebrated as a Mardi Gras fundraiser; however, has been changed to a spring garden party gala.

Kim Elbl is the VP of Fundraising and Development at COMTREA. She says this years event was a smashing success.

All proceeds will go back to benefit COMTREA’s A Safe Place.

A Safe Place was founded in 1987 to serve survivors of domestic violence.

In 1998, the shelter opened at a new, undisclosed location to provide increased care and protection to the residents.

A Safe Place has expanded services by building Mary’s House of Hope at A Safe Place, a transitional housing complex with four apartment units for women and children preparing for independent life.
