SALT LAKE CITY (ABC 4 News) - A cold, hazy day is perfect for staying indoors and getting some serious scrapbooking done. That's what a group of women in Salt Lake are doing, but they have a much larger purpose behind their crafts.
The annual Soroptimist International of Salt Lake’s Crop ‘til it Stops fundraiser took place to Saturday at Sons of Utah Pioneers in Salt Lake City. From 9 a.m to 9 p.m. women scrapbooked to raise money to end domestic violence in Utah.
“One in four women will be abused in their lifetime, so it means your neighbor, your friend everybody know someone who will be abuse,” said Margy Russotto, President of Soroptimist International of Salt Lake.
The women make a donation to attend and the money will go help pay for the YWCA domestic violence hotline. The group is hoping to raise as much as $1,000.
“I think we need to work, not only with the women, but with their young boys to help make sure the cycle doesn't continue on after they've seen abuses in their family and they go on to treat the women in their lives the same way,” said Russotto.
