BARCC Updates

Local Shopping Event to Benefit BARCC, SANE, and Survivors

Field of lavender

Local business Sunny Window is hosting an upcoming shopping event to benefit us and the Massachusetts Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program. Get ready to do some holiday shopping to help ensure that free, compassionate survivor services are available 24-7!

BARCC works together with the SANE program to offer survivors at area hospitals the care and support they need. Together, we make sure that survivors have expert nurses and advocates at their side as they go through a sexual assault exam and evidence collection kit.

Sunny Window will be donating half the profits from its evening event to BARCC and the SANE program. Sunny Window specializes in French lavender, olive oil soaps, fine natural products, and elegant treasures from around the world. Open since 1981, the business has earned many awards for business, entrepreneurship, and community service.

Event details

When: Sunday, December 10, 5:00–8:00 p.m.
Where: 285 Auburndale Ave., Newton, MA 02466

Enjoy the company of neighbors and friends, as well as delicious wine and refreshments, while you shop. This event is 5:00–8:00 p.m. only.
