Fresh StART auction helps domestic violence victims

As we focus on all we’re thankful for this year, we acknowledge that some are really struggling in Northwest Arkansas.

We can help some fellow mamas by purchasing a ticket to the November 29th Fresh StART fundraising event benefiting the Northwest Arkansas Women’s Shelter. This art auction will feature some terrific works by local artists, and artwork by moms and kids will also be on display.

It will be a great opportunity to find some unique holiday gifts for your loved ones. Music by the Claudia Burson Trio ( and a painting “performed” live by Karrie Evenson ( will make it an entertaining evening.

Director Melanie Palmer said all proceeds will provide safe shelter to the victims of domestic violence in NWA.

Melanie added: “Just last week, we had a record 43 people in the shelter. We need your support!”

Tickets are available on the NWA P website: or by calling (479) 246-9999.
