$170,000 raised for Aurora Abuse Response Services

On April 29, more than $170,000 was raised to benefit Aurora Abuse Response Services. The generous support from Aurora caregivers, community members and organizations raised more than $20,000 from our Denim Day 2015 campaign and $150,000 from the Hope Shining Blue event.

Thank you for your support and generosity to benefit sexual assault and abuse survivors. All donations raised from Denim Day activities are directed to:

  • The Healing Center – Offers adult sexual abuse survivors and their loved ones opportunities for healing by providing support, advocacy and community education.
  • Sexual Assault Treatment Center  – Meets the needs of sexual assault survivors by providing immediate, compassionate, culturally sensitive, and comprehensive crisis response with evaluation and treatment by trained, professional nurse experts and crisis counselors.
  • Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner – Specially trained nurses who provide forensic evaluations and emotional support 24/7, 365 days a year at Aurora locations in Burlington, Elkhorn, Hartford, Kenosha, Oshkosh and Sheboygan.

Hope Shining Blue, presented by BMO Harris Bank celebrated survivors and benefited The Healing Center and Safe Mom Safe Baby – a program that focuses on improving the health and safety of pregnant women experiencing domestic violence.

It was a record-breaking event that would not have been possible without generous support from sponsors, attendees and volunteers. Thank you!

Aurora is the only health care system in the state dedicated to helping survivors of abuse from the point of crisis through life-long recovery. Each year more than 2,500 survivors of sexual assault start their healing journey in an Aurora facility.

We are proud to support this effort and honored by everyone who partnered with us to create awareness and raise money.
