Do you like vintage video games? Do you like giant Jenga? Do you like helping a good cause? Then you'll want to attend the Game Night and Fundraising Tournament for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) at Bella Luna on April 16th. Come face off in a classic NES video game or Jenga tournament with BARCC's hotline team at Bella Luna & The Milky Way and help us raise money for BARCC's Annual Walk for Change happening on April 22nd.
The Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC) will honor Jamaica Plain resident Ashley Wells as a Volunteer of the Year at its annual Champions for Change Gala & Auction on Nov. 3rd. The event is a fundraiser to support BARCC’s direct services to survivors of sexual violence and its public education and advocacy work to enact social change and will be held at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront Hotel
Wells is being recognized for her years of volunteer work as a BARCC medical advocate. In that role, Wells meets sexual assault survivors at the hospital to provide them with support and information while they are in the emergency room. She will be honored alongside Walker Bristol of Somerville, a community awareness and prevention services volunteer; and Enid Levangie of Chestnut Hill, a hotline volunteer.
