Stay tuned on our Facebook page for updateson Groovy Nights 2019!
Project Safe’s 17th annual Groovy Nights fundraiser was a hit and we’re looking forward to a successful 18th year in 2019! This year’s event was all about the biggest Lip Sync Battle in Athens, Georgia!
At The Foundry on Saturday, Aug. 25th, The Battle of the Decades 70s vs 80s Lip Sync Battle was filled with competitive performances by local community favorites. Be looking out for announcements and ticket sales on our Facebook page when July 2019 rolls around!
This fundraiser is always a fun night of dancing, lip sync contests, out-of-this-world hairdos, costume contests, henna tattoos, tarot readings, and snack and drink specials from the past!
General admission tickets are $25, and student tickets are available for $18. This event is 18+. Tickets are always available at the door and online for pre-sale in July. All proceeds benefit survivors of domestic violence.
Although this event is the epitome of fun, the cause is why we are here. The event benefits Project Safe, a local nonprofit that works to end domestic violence in Athens and the surrounding areas. Project Safe offers prevention and educational programs, crisis intervention, systems change advocacy, and ongoing supportive services for survivors of domestic violence and their children.
Fundraisers like Groovy Nights allow us to do more for our clients and offer crucial resources to those fleeing or experiencing the devastation of intimate partner violence. In 2017, Project Safe answered 2,660 crisis hotline calls, offered outreach services to 1,067 survivors, and gave 257 educational presentations. With your support, we are able to continue serving those affected by the horrors of domestic abuse and help them move forward in their own, unique healing journeys.
