National Crime Victims’ Rights Week (NCVRW) will be celebrated April 23-29, 2023. This annual week of recognition serves to promote victims' rights and to honor crime victims and those who advocate on their behalf. The theme this year is “Survivor Voices: Elevate. Engage. Effect Change.”
At Crime Victim Services, we believe communities thrive when all members prevail over trauma and support one another with empathy and respect. We strive to amplify the voices of crime victims and survivors through collaboration with community partners to ensure survivor stories are heard and their needs are met.
In recognition of NCVRW, Crime Victim Services will be hosting The Power of Imagination, a theatrical magic production fundraising dinner on Friday, April 28, featuring renowned illusionist, Krendl.
Krendl has appeared on some of the world’s largest and most iconic stages in the world from the Sydney Opera House to the Kennedy Center. He has appeared in over 20 countries and 25 different states in theaters, resorts, casinos, and cruise ships. He invites participants to step into a world of wonder and unleash the power of their imagination with 'The Power of Imagination', a theatrical magic production unlike any other. This captivating performance seamlessly blends history, storytelling, and mind-bending mentalism to create a psychological thriller that will leave you spellbound.
“This event provides an opportunity for CVS to engage with our supporters through a unique, innovative and magical evening of dinner and entertainment. The event will allow CVS to celebrate its history and commitment to advocacy for crime victims and survivors, while calling on us to imagine and explore opportunities for greater service and response to community needs,” said Executive Director, Amy Wiechart-Bayliff.
Tickets for this limited seating event, including a 4 course meal, photo booth, and performance, can be purchased online at crimevictimservices.org/imagine2023 by April 1.
Each year Crime Victim Services provides advocacy and support services to over 5,000 individuals, from infancy through elderly, while also reaching over 2,000 students and community members with anti-violence and healthy relationship education.
Join us as we IMAGINE a world free from violence and oppression, where we put our commitment to action for victim advocacy and empowerment. All proceeds from this event support the prevention, advocacy and outreach efforts of Crime Victim Services.
