2015 Charity Hair and Fashion Show

dig·ni·ty – the state or quality of being worthy of honor & respect.
Who has the right to take that away from someone? No one does. Style for dig·ni·ty is a social justice movement planning events to support social causes.

Inaugural 2015 dig·ni·ty Charity Hair and Fashion Show

The first dig·ni·ty Charity Fashion Show by Salon | Utopia is not your ordinary fashion show – it will bring the attendees awareness of the struggles individuals face with domestic violence in Iowa. Della Viti is so graciously hosting the event.

The event is RSVP only and space is limited. Early bird tickets are $10 but only until November 10th or until they are sold out. Then prices for tickets will go up to normal admission price of $30 through December 12 or until they are sold out. Tickets will be available at the door for $45 if the event is not sold out. Check ticket availability, purchase tickets, or donate online at http://www.stylefordignity.eventbrite.com. If you have trouble purchasing tickets email sales@stylefordignity.com.

1 in 4 women and 1 in 7 men experience domestic violence. 3 million children witness domestic violence in their homes each year.

Database: Iowa domestic abuse homicide victims

Four Iowans have been murdered in domestic violence crimes so far in 2015, according to an Iowa Attorney General's Office report. Since 1995, when the attorney general's office first began keeping the information, 267 people have been killed in domestic violence incidents. The database includes domestic abuse homicides that occurred between 1995 and Sept. 30, 2015.
