Support Victims of Intimate Partner Violence by attending the Virtual SARC Bull and Oyster Roast


DON’T get dressed up, DON’T hire a babysitter, DO have a great meal and GET your end of year tax break!

With continued social distancing requirements to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the 23rd Annual SARC Bull & Oyster Roast will be going VIRTUAL!  In order to raise critical funds for victims of domestic and sexual violence we are inviting the community to once again lend its support and join us for this St. Patrick’s Day themed event!

Our virtual event will take place on Saturday, March 6th.  SARC is thrilled to work with Black Eyed Suzies and to provide traditional Irish meals so that guests can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, raise necessary funds and learn more about SARC’s free services that are offered to nearly 2,000 women, children and men each year. Event tickets include a five-option meal choice, a souvenir cup, St Patrick’s Day swag, entry to win one of two – $50 gift certificates courtesy of Black Eyed Suzies, and an entry to win door prizes.    Raffle tickets are available for purchase for the chance to win a Yeti “Bucket of Cheer” and the “Hearts on Fire” Diamond Necklace courtesy of Saxons. A silent auction featuring prizes like a Pampering Stay-Cation, BBQ Bash and Think Spring will be open for online bidding.

Brian Acquavella, Owner of Black Eyed Suzies stated, “I believe as someone lucky enough to have resources to help people in need, it is my duty to do so.  Unfortunately, it isn’t difficult to find people who could use help, so when I decide who to help, I look for organizations who share the same values as myself and our staff at Black Eyed Suzie’s! What SARC does for people is so incredible and I’m honored to be a small lifeline for them as they are for so many!”

Sponsors of the Bull & Oyster Roast can promote their businesses for an affordable investment, all while supporting a very critical and urgent need in our community. Sponsorship levels offer different benefits including recognition in all pre-event publicity and on the organization’s website, social media ads, as well as recognition at the virtual event.
