Wine and Chocolate Affaire

Wine and Chocolate Affaire

The Southwest Family Advocacy Center will host the second Wine and Chocolate Affaire at its facility, 2333 N. Pebble Creek Parkway, Goodyear, 6 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 9.

The center is a child- and family-focused facility dedicated to reducing the stress and trauma of victims of child abuse, sexual assault, domestic violence and elder abuse, bringing together professionals in law enforcement, child protection, prosecution, mental health, medical forensic assessment and victim advocacy in a comfortable and convenient setting. 

The event features chocolates, wine and beer, while learning how law enforcement, the center and a multidisciplinary team collaborate to build stronger investigations for victims.

The center is sponsored by four law enforcement agencies, including the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and the police departments of Buckeye, Avondale and Goodyear. 

The Wine and Chocolate Affaire is sponsored by the Friends of SWFAC, the center’s 501(c)(3) adjunct board to fund supplemental needs of victims and staff including comfort items for child victims, clothing and snack items, and unfunded support for staff. 

Admission is free to the Wine and Chocolate Affaire; however, donations to the Friends of SWFAC will be accepted. Guests can tour the advocacy center’s public areas.
