Hannah Center Banquet Supports Women in Crisis

The Hannah Center, a home for women in crisis, was established in 1993.

Theme is ‘Up, Up and Away’

The Hannah Center will host its annual Giving for Life Banquet and Auction on October 4 at Riveredge Golf Course.

“Our theme will play off of the many changes we have made within our home in the past year. The Hannah Center assists women and children in crisis by helping those we serve rise ‘up’ and overcome the challenges they face,” said Tricia Fancher. “We assist women and children in crisis to make positive changes in their lives, allowing them to move ‘Up, Up and Away’ into a successful, independent lifestyle.”

All proceeds from the banquet go directly to helping The Hannah Center’s mission. As a nonprofit that does not accept state or federal funding, the center exists solely through the support of the community.

Speaker Diane Dallman will share her story of hope and inspiration. A wife, mother, grandmother, and mentor to many, Dallman has for 18 years been free from alcoholism “by the grace of God.”

“She works to assist women similar to The Hannah Center residents, who have the desire for a life free from the bondage of addiction,” said Fancher. “You may also hear from staff and current residents on the impact The Hannah Center has had in their lives.”

The event includes both a silent and live auction with some notable items for Packer fans. The silent auction will begin at 5:30 with dinner at 6:30 p.m. Register for the event at this link by October 1.

Fancher said past attendees have enjoyed listening to the motivational speaker’s personal testimony and and that hearing from past current residents about the center’s impact was an emotional experience.
