The theme for the 2010 Silver Rose event is â€œIn a Perfect Worldâ€. Avis Frazier-Thomas, Jenesse Board President said, “The 2010 Annual Silver Rose Weekend theme is â€˜In a Perfect Worldâ€™ because in a perfect world, domestic violence does not exist. We work diligently with the hope in our hearts that if we continue to aggressively raise awareness, provide the proper services and engage community support, we will drastically reduce domestic violence and possiblyâ€¦eliminate it altogether. We thank our partners who are in the trenches with us on the quest to end domestic violence. With continued support, we will continue to plant the seeds of peace and harmony as a way of life for our clients and the community. We invite everyone to join us for the 2010 Silver Rose Weekend in April and together, protect our greatest treasure, the American family.”
Karen Earl, Executive Director of the Jenesse Center said, “We are so grateful to have the support of so many businesses, organizations and individuals. This is such important work and we are excited that each year more great people are joining us to bring peace and healing into the homes of families who struggle with domestic violence. I also want to thank the Jenesse Center Board who work tirelessly year-round to champion the cause of the families who so need our help.”
Jenesse Ambassador, Halle Berry, said, “The Silver Rose Weekend will raise much needed funds to help families victimized by domestic violence. Over the past 10 years I’ve watched the lives of countless families transformed and I am excited about the future for these families as we work to build on our success and bring an end to their suffering one family at a time. ”
