Recently on Practically Speaking, we talked about the impact of Domestic Violence on Women (as well as children). For some women, leaving the abusive situation creates another problem: where to stay. One place that women and children in need of short-term shelter can lean on is “Gabriel’s Horn”, a shelter in Portage, Indiana (whether they’re coming out of an abusive relationship or not).

On October 24th, Gabriel’s Horn will be hosting a wine-tasting event on October 24th at Woodland Park in Portage Indiana. The event will be held from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. in the Sycamore room at the pavilion. For advance ticket sales and more info, you can call the office at 219-242-2799 or 219-364-8018.
