Empty Place at the Table to raise awareness for domestic violence

The third annual "Empty Place at the Table" fundraising event for Jana's Campaign is at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 1, in the Robbins Center on the Fort Hays State University campus.

Jana's Campaign was created by the family and friends of Jana Mackey, a University of Kansas law student from Hays who was killed by her ex-boyfriend in 2008. She is the daughter of Dr. Curt and Dr. Christie Brungardt, professors of leadership studies at FHSU.

The mission of Jana's Campaign is to reduce gender and relationship violence by focusing on preventing violence before it happens, as well as educating individuals on the dangers of violence. The empty place at the table is symbolic of all victims who are in pain.

The night will feature a dinner, cocktails, an auction and live music at the Robbins Center. Cocktail attire is recommended.

Tickets are $50 and can be reserved at http://www.janascampaign.org.
