AWAKE celebrates 20 years

Written by 

AWAKE (Adults Working and Advocating for Kids’ Empowerment) will host a 20th anniversary celebration from 3 to 6 p.m. Nov. 7 at the Nichols House in Sylva.

AWAKE’s mission is to coordinate and advocate services for abused children in Jackson County. It is a child-friendly place where child victims of abuse can be interviewed once, rather than having to retell the story and relive the trauma numerous times. AWAKE has a multi-disciplinary team who collaborates to effectively bring the child’s case to a resolution. They work to educate the community on signs of abuse and the importance of reporting abuse. AWAKE is available for families if on-site counseling is requested and also supports children and their families involved in criminal justice systems. 

Tickets are $20 per person.

    With guitars in-hand, The DuPont Brothers are two men, two voices that become a singular melodic force. The Vermont-based siblings are quite possibly the finest acoustic duo out there today, nationally or internationally. Their mesmerizing sound and pure intent perpetuates a long line of powerhouse harmonic acts, bringing names like Simon & Garfunkel and Seals & Crofts to mind.
