Human trafficking is modern-day slavery and the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. Sex trafficking is one of the most profitable forms of trafficking and involves many kinds of sexual exploitation, such as prostitution, pornography and the commercial sexual abuse of children. What you may not know is that sex trafficking is not just something that takes place in 3rd world nations, but also happens to US citizens residing within U.S. borders.
The Department of Justice estimates that more than 250,000 American children are at risk for trafficking into the sex industry annually. The average age of girls who enter into prostitution is 13 years old. And, 1 in 3 runaways are recruited by a pimp within 48 hours of leaving home.
Founded in 2009, Real Escape from the Sex Trade (REST) is a 501c-3 charitable organization that exists to bring freedom and hope to victims of sex trafficking and people involved in the sex trade in Seattle and the surrounding region by offering a real and lasting escape. We have a number of direct outreach teams, as well as a restorative housing program, a mentorship program and demand reduction efforts. While we have a lot to celebrate, there's much more work to be done.
REST is currently planning our annual fall fundraiser, A Night of REST, a silent & live auction. Join us for an evening of fun and philanthropy as we come together as a community to serve victims of human trafficking.
Bid on fantastic silent auction items as you sip cocktails and get ready for our main event. Afterwards, indulge in an exquisite three course steak or halibut dinner. Don't miss your chance to bid on one-of-a-kind live auction items!
If you are interested in reserving a table for ten so you can sit with your friends, please email us! It's a sure way have an incredible evening. (Cost to reserve a table of ten is $750, individual tickets $75)
