On Saturday, August 26th, Weifield attended the TESSA Pasta in the Park fundraiser event at the Myron Stratton Home grounds in Colorado Springs, Colorado!
This year’s event featured a pasta sauce cook-off, beer, wine, and whiskey tastings, auctions, and a cork pull. This annual event brought together influential charitable partners dedicated to raising awareness and funds for TESSA’s mission of providing safety, empowerment, and advocacy for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and stalking.
TESSA was established in May 1977 in response to a high rate of calls to local law enforcement from women threatened or assaulted by their partners. At the time, Domestic Violence was considered a private matter and resources were difficult to locate, if they existed at all. With assistance from within the legal and philanthropic communities TESSA emerged as an information provider and resource referral service. That initial effort has evolved into a multi-faceted agency that includes a confidential Safehouse, Victim Advocacy, Counseling and Children’s Programs, a 24/7 Safe Line, and Community Outreach and Education. Through these efforts, TESSA strives to realize our vision of a community free of personal violence for all.
Attendees in the Weifield group included Colby F. (Rocky Mountain Director of Southern Colorado) and Wendy F., Marshall T. (Rocky Mountain Senior Preconstruction Manager) and Laura T., Bill and Kelly Eustace (Heating & Plumbing Engineers – HPE), Vince and Stacey Schauer (GH Phipps).
Weifield was grateful to attend and support this worthwhile fundraiser!
