Published: Wednesday, September 25, 2013 at 05:50 PM.

“Men, get your high heels out and get ready to walk a short distance in support of an abuse victim that could be your sister, your mother, your grandmother, your daughter,” said Lee. “I hear that their are some out there who are so excited about this event that they plan to wear skirts with their heels, which sounds like so much fun.”

Last would be the luminary event, where they recognize victims and survivors of domestic violence.

“If you know someone who has fallen victim to domestic violence or is a survivor of domestic violence, please consider naming them for a luminary to be lit in their name the night of the event,” said Lee. “Survivors of domestic violence will be sharing their stories while this vigil takes place.”

She said one in four women would experience domestic violence in their lifetime.  “Domestic violence does not discriminate against race, religion, financial stature or age.  Domestic Violence will never stop if we do not get involved,” said Lee. “It takes a community to stop this abuse. Thank you in advance for your support; if you make a step to get involved, you never know who might follow in your steps.”

Entertainment will include local young artists as well as demonstrations by Trinity Martial Arts and drama skits by Carmel Youth Drama Team, Take 2.

Featured entertainment will be free concerts by The Drummonds gospel group and Nashville country singer and Sun Records recording star Julie Roberts.

T-shirts will be available for $15 for task force shirts and $20 for event shirts and Awareness bracelets will be available for $10.
