Each year, The Center is involved in several special events that not only help to raise dollars that help our agency better serve our community, but that also help to raise awareness about the effects of violence on those who live in our own homes,neighborhoods, and communities.
The Progressive Business Group (PBG) hosts the Annual Valentine’s Ball to benefit The Center for Prevention of Abuse. This black tie optional affair features a champagne reception, hot hors d'oeuvres, dinner and dessert, live music, and silent auction.
The PBG is made up of business men and women in central Illinois who have a good time fostering leadership and building long lasting relationships, while helping local charities improve the lives of those less fortunate. PBG’s relationships in the community broaden the event's recognition. Additional information can be viewed at www.progressivebusinessgroup.org.
