Illinois Valley Clubs to Raise Awareness of Domestic Violence with Luminary Walk Thursday

Posted by wlpo on October 19, 2016

You probably knew October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but did you know it’s also a month for calling awareness to another tragedy?

October is also Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and one organization that works to end domestic violence has a way you can get involved. The Zonta clubs of Streator, LaSalle-Peru, and Ottawa are getting together Thursday for their luminary walk at the city’s Washington Square Park.

Linda Hiltabrand is the President of the LaSalle-Peru Zontas, and she says the group’s multicultural heritage is a strength.

Hiltabrand went on to say the luminary walk is a great, free way to get involved with the organization.

The event starts at Washington Square Park at 6:30. The walk will go from the park to First United Methodist Church where a ceremony will take place.
