You're Invited to...
RISE Up SLO County:
A Benefit Competition Supporting Survivors

Business leaders of SLO County: You're invited to partner with RISE for the inaugural RISE Up SLO County!

This April, we are partnering with a select group of local businesses and entrepreneurs to participate in a Sexual Assault Awareness Month fundraising competition.

We hope you will join us and be recognized for your commitment to ending sexual assault in our community.

By signing up, you'll have the opportunity to raise awareness about the prevalence of sexual assault in SLO County while growing your customer base, supporting local survivors and RISE programs and services, and having fun doing it!

You will receive fundraising support and materials to display and distribute at your place of business, and perks like public recognition on RISE social media, our website, and a press release. On Thursday April 30, you'll be invited to a wrap party at The Penny in SLO hosted by RISE to thank you for your support and to announce and celebrate the winners. Winners will receive tickets to our annual Wine Women & Shoes event on September 13th.

Statistics show that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 33 men will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime, and RISE Up SLO County is a fun, family-friendly way to rally the community to take action against this injustice. 

If you are interested in participating, please sign up online here.

Questions? Email Stacy at or call 805-226-5400 ext. 307.
