Middle Way House and the City of Bloomington are thrilled to announce their upcoming event, the Wrapped in Love Kickoff Celebration, honoring the organization’s 12th annual tree sweater public art display. Join Middle Way House on Thursday, October 12th, at 5:30 PM at the Switchyard Park Pavilion. Come as you are and enjoy dinner, drinks, and a dessert auction. Tickets are available for purchase at https://givebutter.com/wrappedinlovekickoff.
Since 2012, Middle Way House’s Wrapped in Love tree sweaters have been prominently displayed on trees in the heart of Bloomington from October 1st through the end of the year to raise awareness of domestic violence, sexual assault, and human trafficking. This year, the City of Bloomington is formally partnering with Middle Way House to help spread awareness of abuse and connect Bloomington residents with critical support resources.
Middle Way House is accepting both sponsors and fiber artists to contribute to the display. Fiber artists of all levels can contribute knitted squares to create the display’s beautiful tree sweaters in a community effort. Sponsorships are available at multiple levels; demonstrate your commitment to ending violence by becoming a sponsor today. Individuals interested in fiber artist and/or sponsorship opportunities can reach out to Middle Way House’s Development Director, Maria Douglas, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
