Darkness To Light's5th ANNUAL PREVENT-A-THON August 2010Prevent-a-thon Mobilizes the Tri-County to Address Child Sexual Abuse!{}Prevent-a-thon: What it IsPrevent-a-thon is a month-long media event that drives people to take action to protect the children in their lives. It mobilizes the community to address the issue of child sexual abuse.{}Raising Awareness of the IssuePrevent-a-thon raises awareness of the problem by blanketing the area with news stories, supporting events, public service announcements and a public awareness campaign. In 2009, Darkness to Lights documentary ran multiple times on local networks and WCIV Channel 4 televised a Larry King style interview in prime time. The plans for the 2010 Prevent-a-thon are even bigger and better!{}Educating the CommunityEach day in August, Darkness to Lights nationally-acclaimed Stewards of Children child sexual abuse prevention training sessions are held without charge in a wide array of locations and venues. In addition, there are free training sessions for businesses, youth-serving organizations, schools and faith centers. Thousands of people take Darkness to Light's training during Prevent-a-thon, and many organizations pledge to host a training session in the coming months. There is no charge for these training sessions because Darkness to Light focuses most of its year-round local fundraising efforts on raising money for these scholarships.{}SuccessPrevent-a-thon drives Darkness to Light's local training initiative. It is expected that 23,000 tri-county adults will be been trained by the end of the calendar year. This includes 100% of Charleston, Berkeley and Dorchester County teachers!{}{}Schedule of Events{}Monday, August 2ndFat Hen Benefit Night 3140 Maybank Highway Johns Island, SC 29455 map | directions Thursday, August 5th{}Ant March Happy Hour Halls Chophouse 5-7pm 434 King Street Charleston, SC 29403 map | directions Tuesday, August 10th{}Mt.
