Community Against Sexual Harm (CASH) Benefit

Community Against Sexual Harm (CASH) will be holding a benefit at 5:00 p.m., Thursday, May 3, 2012 at the Antigua Cantina & Grill, located at 723 K St.  

Street level prostitution had been an ongoing concern in the Oak Park and Stockton Boulevard areas for decades.  Five Sacramento Police Officers; Sergeant Susan Feenstra, Sergeant Cindy Stinson, Detective Erika Woolson, Officer Tera Carson and Retired Officer Kathy Fritzsche, teamed up with two community leaders, Dr. Dana Kivel, and Mimi Lewis to create a prostitution intervention program.   

In 2008, with the help and support of the community, the CASH program opened its clinic doors and has been in existence assisting those in need ever since.  

CASH is non-profit organization that not only provides assistance for victims of sexual exploitation, sex trafficking and prostitution, but also offers hope by assisting with outreach services, peer counseling, support groups, food, clothing, and housing assistance.

Tickets are $35 and include admission, wine and hors d'oeuvres. Additionally, gift cards, restaurant vouchers, various memorabilia, athletic tickets, and more will be available for bidding through a silent auction, and raffle tickets will be sold for various prizes. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.cashsac.org/eventstickets.

To donate items or purchase tickets please contact: Sue Huffstutler, Executive Director at shuffstutler@cashsac.org or (916) 856-2900.
