October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Help WAVI Light the Nights in Rapid City

Please join the WAVI “Light the Nights” event starting October 1 and ending October 31, 2021.
We are asking the residents and businesses of Rapid City
to put a light in their windows or purple bulbs in exterior lights and help
WAVI Light the Nights in October.
The lights will be a community show of support to victims of domestic violence
and a thank you to all who support this effort in the Black Hills.
The purpose of this month-long event is to bring community support, gratitude, awareness, and education
on the topic of Domestic Violence to Rapid City.

Come golf on October 23 for a good cause!
Join us for some fun with the Heaven and Hell tournament at Hart Ranch Golf Course, benefiting WAVI.

The Front 9 will be set up so easy you’ll swear there is harp music playing in the background.  Short holes, large cups and miscellaneous roadside assistance…..HEAVEN!!

The Back 9, however, will be a bit more like playing in Hell.  It will be set up so difficult, well, you’ll just swear. 
Not sure of the forecast yet but you can bet the Back 9 will be a little hotter….
Tournament Sponsored at Hart Ranch Golf Course
