The Fort Smith Crisis Intervention Center invites you to join us for our third annual Ultimate Tailgate fundraiser. It’s time to
get in the game and support our community’s only safe shelter for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault and their families! This casual tailgate themed party will include live music by local favorites Mas Agua and The Remnants, silent and live auctions, two open bars, an MVP Lounge, tailgate games, and lots of other fun surprises!
All proceeds from the event benefit the Crisis Intervention Center. We work to support and empower survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault in Western Arkansas and Eastern Oklahoma. We operate a 27/7 help+support hotline, 32-bed emergency shelter, specialized medical clinic, and an on-site child care facility. We also provide various educational and preventative programs to encourage healthy relationships and help break the cycle of violence in this community. The proceeds from this yearly event enable us to provide these services free of charge. Our goal is to be less reliant on federal and state subsidies that may or may not be here in the future by garnering funding locally. Through the generous support of our donors, sponsors, and volunteers we plan on continuing and expanding on these services, which are crucial to propelling our mission forward.
