More than $245,000 was raised at this year’s Hope Shining Blue event

Thank you to all sponsors and attendees for another successful Hope Shining Blue event! This year, more than $245,000 was raised- a record high- to  support all of Aurora’s Healing and Advocacy Services programs in Milwaukee including Aurora Healing Center on Bruce (The Healing Center), Aurora Healing Center at Aurora Sinai Medical Center (Sexual Assault Treatment Center), Safe Mom Safe Baby, and the Milwaukee Sexual Assault Review.

At the event, Shawn Hittman was presented with this year’s THRIVE award. Shawn was honored for his courageous approach to healing after surviving childhood sexual abuse. He received counseling at the Aurora Healing Center on Bruce, and is now using his experience to help others. CLICK HERE to watch his story.

Our survivor models did such a fantastic job on the runway and were a wonderful example of what courage and dignity looks like. To see more photos of our survivor models and from the wonderful night, CLICK HERE.
