Cabin fever happens in the winter, when the days get short and the dark gets long. Folks start feeling restless or lonely and need a chance to feel like part of something fun and meaningful. This fun evening will bring much needed support to Be A Voice 4 Kids.

The mission of Be A Voice 4 Kids is to educate, prevent and heal childhood abuse through spiritual strength, peer support and inspiration. Although created as a fundraiser, Cabin Fever will also bring awareness of child sexual abuse, the need to educate for prevention, and to help heal those who have been victimized.

Polk County Schools Superintendent Aaron Greene will be the emcee for the evening to show his support for the cause. Many local merchants have offered door prizes and live and silent auction items. Food will be provided by Mountain View Barbeque and Southern Manners.

Tickets for Cabin Fever can be purchased at TD Bank in Tryon, Tangle and Toes (call 828-899-0107 for store hours), or by calling Mary Edwards, president of Be A Voice 4 Kids at 828-817-4267. Tickets will be available at the door.

Be a Voice 4 Kids is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, therefore additional donations are tax deductible.
