Join us October 2 at the Edgewater Casino’s Stadium Club for Shimmy Showdown, a fundraiser for the Dixon Transition Society. This event will include a stellar line up of belly dance performances, a silent auction, and a raffle to raise funds for the Transition House. Serving the community since 1973, Dixon Transition Society serves women and children survivors of domestic violence by providing a safe haven through their Transition House and continuum of comprehensive services. When women and children arrive at their Transition House they often have nothing but the clothes they are wearing. When staying with them we cover the cost of food, clothes, medication and bus tickets for the families. They rely on fundraising to be able to provide our comprehensive services and create a home away from home for the women and children that stay with them.
