Harmony House has announced eight finalists that are in competition to be named “Harmony Hero” at the organization’s upcoming “Purple Party” fundraising event.
The eight nominees for “Harmony Hero” were selected for “their passion for the work we do to end domestic violence.” Harmony House called them “community members who fight for change” whom the organization felt they couldn’t do their mission in the community without their help.
The eight community members nominated to be the “Harmony Hero” are: Greene County Sheriff Jim Arnott; Springfield City Public Information Officer Cora Scott; realtor Angie McCoy; Springfield Police Chief Paul Williams; real estate investor Curtis Jared; surgeon Dr. Robert Cavagnol; Jack Henry trainer Reggie Harris; and Central Bank VP Teri Cantwell.
The “Purple Party” is an 80s themed event for ladies in the Ozarks. It will feature a “food court”, game in the “arcade” and entertainment by the 80s cover band Members Only. The event takes place May 2nd at the Oasis Hotel & Convention Center.
Harmony House serves men, women and children of the region who are victims of domestic violence. Last year, they protected 868 people who were impacted by violence.
