The virtual event includes an auction, speakers

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – A $5,000 match will help a local shelter for victims of abuse.

The ‘Victory over Violence’ fundraiser will be held online Thursday evening.

The event will raise money for New Horizons Shelters in La Crosse and Trempealeau Counties.

An online auction is open now.

The woman who is offering the match will speak at 6:30 Thursday night.

“They are survivors. But they have probably not had many breaks in their lives and everyone needs some assistance,” said match donor Rosalie Schnick.

The auction will close at 7 p.m.

Details are available on the New Horizons website.
