Title Boxing Club in Crystal Lake is hosting, "One Billion Rising," a dancing event meant to encourage people to rise up against violence towards women.
Dancing will take place from 7 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 14, at Title Boxing Club, 435 Angela Ln., Crystal Lake (facing Randall Road).
"One in three women on the planet will be raped or beaten in her lifetime," said in a press release. "One billion women violated is an atrocity. One billion dancing is a revolution!"
There is a $5 entry fee, which will be donated to Turning Point of McHenry County. Turning Point is a domestic violence agency that provides services and programs to help women and children in McHenry County, Illinois.
