FARMINGTON – With college basketball’s March Madness heating up, the Granary and SAVES, Franklin County’s rape crisis center, have teamed up for a fund-raiser.

During the March Madness regional play-offs of the NCAA tournament, the Granary will donate to SAVES 10 percent of all food sales from noon to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 24.

According to SAVES and the Granary, the fund-raiser brings to the public an opportunity to see NCAA basketball while contributing to a cause.

Sexual assault, an act of violence, takes several forms, including rape, sexual molestation, child sexual abuse and incest. Victims of sexual assault can be any age, female or male. It can take place in the home, outside the home, or in a variety of public places.

SAVES provides crisis intervention services to victims and the Sexual Assault Response Team works with law enforcement and the court system on behalf of the victims. SAVES also provides school-based and community education programs to increase awareness about prevention of sexual violence.

For dinner reservations call the Granary at 779-0710 or for more information about sexual violence call the SAVES office at 778-9522. The SAVES 24-hour crisis hotline is 1-800-871-7741.
