Awareness Bracelet Design Contest!

bracelets closerThis fall MAAV will celebrate our 20th Anniversary! 7 years ago we started a tradition of creating a Domestic Violence Awareness Bracelet that’s sold throughout the community during October in conjunction with our Annual Walk & Candlelight Vigil. This year we invite the community to help us design a special bracelet to mark our 20th year. The deadline is May 31.  Read all the details here about the contest rules and criteria. Many thanks to our judges, Lorrie DiCesare of Hourglass Gift Gallery, Joanne Cotton of Madison Ave of Melrose, and community member Mary Beth Margolis. Let the creativity begin!
