I am Rich Batley and I am the operating partner for the CopperLeaf Hotel & Spa in Appleton. I have been in the hospitality business for over 50 years. And now I am going to try to be a dancer, for a great cause of course! And I really need your help. On October 21st I will be competing as a celebrity dancer for the 10th Annual Shall We Dance event. This is the primary fundraiser for the Sexual Assault Crisis Center – Fox Cities. My fantastic dance partner, Jessie Spencer, from Valley Social Dance Studio in Appleton, has her work cut out for her.
In addition to trying to win this event, my competitive side is showing, I would like to raise the most funds for the Sexual Assault Crisis Center. We will be hosting a number of fun-filled events that you can participate in or if you would simply be so kind to donate to this worthwhile cause that would be great too. (Stay connected to CopperLeaf’s Facebook page for updates on Sept 25th Golf Outing, live auctions, wine & dinner events, and much more!)
I was surprised to find out how many people, young and old, male and female, are in need of services that the Sexual Assault Crisis Center provides. The center provides crisis intervention, advocacy and counseling for individuals and families affected by sexual trauma and exploitation at no cost. The center is also committed to addressing the diverse needs of our community by providing prevention education and raising awareness to create a safer Fox Valley.
I look forward to hearing from you.
All the best,
Also, please let me know if you have any dancing tips, I need all the help I can get.!
