Denim and Teal Day sexual violence fundraising effort open to faculty, staff

October 4, 2013

Loyola University New Orleans is joining the fight to end rape and other forms of sexual violence by hosting the 22nd annual New Orleans Take Back the Night candlelit rally Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 6 p.m. Loyola faculty and staff can join in on the effort during the day by donating $5 to wear denim and teal—the color of sexual violence awareness.

All funds raised are distributed equally to benefit three local service groups dedicated to serving victims and survivors of gender-based violence, including the Crescent House, Metropolitan Center for Women and Children and the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner program. Last year, the Denim and Teal Day fundraising effort raised more than $2,200.

Departments participating should RSVP to Emma Cate Pegues by Oct. 9. Each department will then receive an envelope with a tracking form for donations. Participants are encouraged to wear denim and a teal shirt or teal ribbon during the day Oct. 23.

For more information, please contact Pegues at 504-865-3835.
