Annual fundraising event to support Project Safe scheduled for Aug. 27

Project Safe’s annual fundraiser is back again with a twist. Groovy Nights Battle of the Decades! will be held at 8 p.m. Aug. 27 at the 40 Watt, 285 W. Washington St. A flashback to the 1970s and 1980s, the fundraiser will be a night of moonwalking and hustling, out of this world hairdos, costume contests, VIP lounges, Henna tattoos, surprise guest appearances and snacks from the past.

The fundraiser will benefit Project Safe, a local nonprofit that works to end domestic violence in Athens and the surrounding areas.

Those who can’t make the fundraiser but still want to support Project Safe can visit the organization’s website to purchase raffle tickets for several prize packages.

Tickets for Groovy Nights are $25 per person and are available to those 18 and older. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online at Raffle tickets, which are $20 each, also can be purchased online.
