The WAVE Foundation (Women Against Violence Everywhere) Day of Shopping Event last month raised about $1,400.

Ten percent of all purchases at Look’s Unique Home Accents, Gifts and Cards that day went to the WAVE Foundation fundraiser.

Sharon Anderson, WAVE Foundation executive director, said the group has hosted a day-of-shopping event for more than a decade.

“It’s always a fun event for me,” she said. “It’s a great group of our usual customers who contribute to the cause.”

The WAVE Foundation was established to bring attention to the many and diverse issues of domestic violence. Its purpose gives hope and education to women and men (including children, adolescents and young adults) in the defense and prevention of domestic violence, supports organizations that provide treatment, counseling, advocacy, crisis communication, outreach and shelter to victims of domestic violence, and generally promotes the social welfare of those at risk.
