A Warm & Cozy Evening to Benefit Fort Wayne Sexual Assault Center

It was a Warm & Cozy evening inside the offices at A Party Apart in downtown Fort Wayne on Tuesday, January 8, 2013.  It was an evening hosted by Cheryl Brockmann to shed light on a wonderful organization, the Fort Wayne Sexual Assault Center.

Michelle Ditton, RN, SANE-A, SANE-P, Chief Nursing Officer and Ex. Dir. of the Fort Wayne Sexual Assault Center explained to the crowd the essential work performed at the center and how fortunate the Fort Wayne area is to have such a facility.

Since 1996 The Sexual Assault Center has helped over 4,000 patients.
Last year, 2012, was the second busiest year with a total of 332 patients.
Since 1996, the youngest person sexually assaulted was only 37 days old and the oldest was 91 years old.
Attendees brought toiletry items, new clothing, and/or monetary donations to help with day-to-day operation expenses.
