The Dixie Roadhouse is hosting a special event on Sunday, January 26, 2014 to support Abuse Counseling and Treatment, Inc. It takes place from 2-8 p.m.

Abuse Counseling & Treatment, better known as ACT, is a non-profit agency that serves Lee, Hendry and Glades counties with a 24-hour crisis hotline, forensic examinations, and safe shelter for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking, as well as their families, and the new and temporarily homeless. At any given point in time, ACT feeds and houses approximately 100 men, women and children in two shelters, and provides them with counseling, advocacy, education, information and referrals. ACT serves hundreds more free of charge through its monthly outreach services. To help fund its activities and programs, ACT operates Second ACT Thrift Store and Arts for ACT Gallery in the downtown Fort Myers River District.

The First Annual Dixie Roadhouse “ACT’s Up for ACT” will include music, dancing, food and much more…including door prizes. Doors open at 2:00 p.m. and James Fitzwater will be giving line dance lessons from 4-6 p.m. A $5 donation is requested at the door, and all proceeds go to ACT.

The event is sponsored by Budweiser and Jagermeister.

The Dixie Roadhouse is located at 2023 SE 47th Terrace between 10th & 11 Streets in Cape Coral.
