During the week of February 13-16, Lees-McRae College will host the V-Day Campaign 2012 for our community. This campaign aims to increase awareness about violence against women and works to end that violence.
The campaign begins on February 13 with a showing of a V-Day documentary, "Until the Violence Stops" at 7 p.m. On February 15, there will be a VMen Workshop at 6:30 p.m. where men discuss ways of ending violence against women.
Then, on February 16, the week culminates in a production of The Vagina Monologues, performed by Lees-McRae students, faculty, staff and alumni. There will be a pre-show buffet at 6:30 p.m. followed by the performance 7:30 p.m. The buffet features delicious food by Nick's Pub and Restaurant, Jackalope's View, Bayou Smokehouse and Grill, Bella's Italian Restaurant, and Sugar View CafÃ©.
All events will be held in Evans Auditorium on the Lees-McRae College campus. A minimum donation of $5.00 is required for the buffet and performance. Any donation will be accepted for the performance.
Following the performance, we encourage everyone to stay for a candlelight vigil walk around campus to honor victims of domestic violence. All of the V-Day Campaign's proceeds will go to The New Day of Avery County, our local domestic violence shelter.
