Project Safe holds a variety of fundraisers each year, keep checking back to see what’s next.

Groovy Nights is held annually in August! A tribute to the outrageousness of the 1970s and the 1980s, this event is not your typical fundraiser. Enjoy our fabulous buffet including selections for vegetarians as well as meat lovers, separate 70s stations with favorites like fondue, and 70’s/80’s drink specials at the bar. Boogie to the best sounds from these eras, play giant Twister or take our trivia challenge. Enter the raffle for fabulous prizes. Tickets are $25 and are available on this website. Click on the Groovy Nights button for more information or to buy tickets.

The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler is always a popular fundraiser. Performances will be mid February at the UGA Chapel on North Campus. Tickets are $15 and will go on sale early February on this website. Tickets will also be on sale at the door.

Dancing with the Athens Stars is one of the community’s premier fundraiser events! Project Safe has lined up local dance instructors and matched them with “stars”, notable Athenians who contribute to what makes our community great. After taking lessons during the Fall and Winter, our couples will perform at the Classic Center. The People’s Choice contest held every summer helps determine the last few participants in the “Dancing” line up. See the Dancing with the Stars button on this website for a list of contestants. Tickets to the show are $21 and are on sale at the Classic Center in the Spring. Premium seats near the stage along with a VIP reception are available as part of sponsorship packages. Audience and community members can vote for their favorite couple by donating a dollar per vote to Project Safe. Trophies will be awarded based on performance and number of votes received.

    Is there anything I can do to help with in the shelter or business as a volunteer? I would like to donate my time if possible. I am up for anything. Great references if needed.

    Thank you!

    Hello! I am President of NHS at Oconee County High School!
    For a project this year, we collected a lot of clothing! I was wondering if there is any way to directly donate the clothes to the women and children in the shelter?
