Your partnership will support critically needed services to child abuse victims and Darkness to Light trainings that educate parents, grandparents, and professionals how to protect children from child sexual abuse and what to do if a child discloses abuse.

"I attended last year's Light Up the Night event at Oakland's Mansion. What a great event for a great cause! There was food, music, and wonderful people from our community. All proceeds go to Rutherford County CAC and the work these folks do day in and day out is amazing. Light Up the Night is a fun time for an absolutely outstanding cause," said Detective Tommy Roberts, Murfreesboro Police Department.
