A Dinner with Dickens

This evening, you are invited to Interior Alaska Center for Non-Violent Living's calorie free, time saving, stay-at-home benefit dinner.

To partake, select the "dinner" of your choice and make your contribution to IAC.

By Eleanor Farjeaon

Before you bid, for Christmas' sake,
Your guests to sit at meat,
Oh please to save a little cake
For them that have no treat.

Before you go down party-dressed
In silver gown or gold, Oh please to send a little vest
To them that still go cold.

Before you give your girl and boy
Gay gifts to be undone,
Oh please to pare a little toy
To them that will have non.

Before you gather round the tree
To dance the day about,
Oh please to give a little glee
To them that go without.

Now brew yourself a cup of Christmas Tea, sit back watching the Northern Lights in your favorite chair, and think of the women and children you are helping by participating in this holiday fundraiser. Because of your contribution, next year many women and children will be able to celebrate the holiday season and enjoy a peaceful Christmas dinner free from fear and abuse.

We at the Interior Alaska Center for Non-Violent Living have provided services to the community since April 1978 in hopes that one day we will all celebrate the end of family violence. Thank you for making this evening very special for all of us.
