No Harm Done Hosts Benefit Concert with Original Songs Performed by Local Artists to Benefit the Utah Domestic Violence Council for its Fight Against Domestic Violence
Salt Lake City & Provo, UT – No Harm Done, the fundraising initiative to raise awareness and the necessary funds to assist victims of domestic violence, will host a benefit concert with six featured artists performing at the University of Utah’s Oplin Union Ballroom on June 1st. A CD comprised with original music from 12 artists will also be available for sale, and all proceeds will be donated to the Utah Domestic Violence Council.

 “I set up this benefit concert because I really believe there are too many cases of domestic violence in Utah,” explained Jefferson Montoya, founder of the No Harm Done project and award winning singer/songwriter. “Domestic violence is never acceptable and our goal is to raise a significant amount of money for the cause.” Domestic violence is the leading cause of injury to women; more than car accidents, muggings, and rapes combined. No Harm Done, in collaboration with the local performers, will help provide the resources needed to bring help and hope to these women.

“The Utah Domestic Violence Council’s vision is to live in a world where everyone lives free from fear,” said Peg Coleman, Utah Domestic Violence Council. “No Harm Done also hopes that this vision will be accomplished and the benefit concert is the first step to help it become reality.”

The No Harm Done initiative is currently seeking corporate sponsors to assist with the costs associated with the concert, including the production of the original CDs being sold at the event.

The benefit concert, which is open to the public, will begin at 6:00 p.m. at the University of Utah’s Olpin Union Ballroom on June 1st, and will be featuring top talents like Ellee Duke, John VanWagner, and Jefferson Montoya. Tickets are $10 per person and can be purchased at Fundly.com/do-no-harm, as well as advanced copies of the CD and donation opportunities.

About Utah Domestic Violence Council:

The Utah Domestic Violence Council (UDVC), formerly the Utah Domestic Violence Advisory Council, was founded in 1978 by the Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS). The UDVC was initially formed as a community forum to start a dialogue about domestic violence in the state of Utah. The UDVC incorporated in 1993, and in 1994 the Council became independent of DCFS. In 1998, the UDVC was designated as a 501c(3), non-profit organization.

The UDVC is recognized nationally as the state domestic violence coalition in Utah. UDVC receives base funding from two federal state coalition grants, Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA) and Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) grant.

Currently, the UDVC is comprised of 36 voting members with a 12 member Board of Directors. The Council employs 7 staff and has 4 independent contractors and 4 dedicated volunteers. Four (4) working committees and eight (8) workgroups, focus on collaborative efforts in public awareness, training and education, best practices for domestic violence shelter programs and treatment providers, and cultural competency and policy. The Council also works closely with and provides limited funding for Utah’s 22 local domestic violence coalitions, as well as collaborating with and providing resources and information to many individuals and agencies. UDVC also hosts the Domestic Violence LinkLine, which operates 24 hours a day.

The UDVC’s unique status as both a grass roots, open community forum and a non-profit Council as well as its local and national relationships allow it to function with efficiency and effectiveness. Throughout the years the UDVC has shown extraordinary achievement in becoming the leader of Utah’s collaborative statewide effort to eliminate domestic violence.

*The performers are not being compensated for the event and are donating their time and music for the benefit concert. All proceeds, including the purchases of music from online sources will be donated to the UDVC.
