On Thursday, May 25th, SACE will be hosting its annual fundraising and awareness gala at the Shaw Conference Centre with an anticipated 350-400 guests in attendance. The evening will include musical entertainment, a plated dinner, live painting, as well as silent and live auctions. This year’s event is We Believe: The Art of Healing. Art therapy is one of the many therapeutic trauma modalities utilized by the 14 trauma therapists at SACE.
We are proud to announce that Jillian Marino, a survivor of a horrific act of sexual violence, will be our guest speaker. Jillian, now the Principal at John D. Bracco Junior High School, has shared her story as a keynote speaker with Victim’s Services volunteers, conferences for Crown Prosecutors, Violence against Women events, and for the Edmonton Police Service over the years. Her very impactful and empowering presentation will be one of hope, strength, and victory in the healing journey after trauma.
