Fresh StART

October 22, 2022 DoubleTree Suites in Bentonville


We are excited to welcome you to our 2022 Signature fundraising event – Casino Royale!

After 2 years of virtual events and party boxes, we are back IN PERSON for FreshStART on October 22, 2022! We hope you can join us for a night of honoring the courage of our clients and raising money to support the programs of the NWA Women’s Shelter!

Honorary Co-Chairs Jason Fremstad & Seth Malley invite you to participate in a night of DO GOOD gaming! We will have casino game tables featuring poker, blackjack, roulette, & craps.  Each ticket comes with game chips. At the end of the night, you will trade in your “winnings” for drawing tickets and have the chance to win some fantastic prizes!

In addition to gaming, we will have complimentary wine, beer, and seltzers, heavy hors d’oeuvres, a jam packed silent auction, and a DJ cranking tunes to keep the celebration going!

A note from Honorary Co-Chair Jason Fremstad:

“I am very proud to be a volunteer for the NWAWS. The NWAWS provides a safe space for women, children, and men that are victims of abuse and have nowhere else to go. Please consider supporting this great cause to help us ensure the shelter can continue to take care of those that are impacted by abuse. Everyone deserves to have a safe space where they can make the changes needed in their life to leave an abusive situation. Help us provide support and hope by attending our Monte Carlo FreshStART event on October 22.”

Featured Artist : Elizabeth M. Boyd

Elizabeth Bautista-Boyd is an Oklahoma-based artist best known for creating vibrant and colorful acrylic paintings.  Deeply inspired by the rich colors of her Mexican heritage, Elizabeth strives to create vivid and radiant works of art.  Not confined to any one particular style of art, Elizabeth looks for inspiration everywhere, leaving endless possibilities for her creative mind to explore.  At the top of the list, Elizabeth’s love of music and travel are key inspirations in her work.  Her most popular works have been her unique play on guitars and vibrant landscapes filled with fun textures and eye-catching colors.  Though vibrancy is key in the majority of her paintings, you will find that Elizabeth’s collection also includes a variety of other works that encompass a more subtle use of color.   No matter the color palette, subject matter or style of art, Elizabeth’s main goal is to convey the beauty of what she sees through her eyes.

“Attending and supporting Fresh StART enables me to enjoy art and to have fellowship and fun in the wonderful community that we share and call home. Supporting Fresh StART also enables Eldridge Brooks Partners to not only give a donation but to hopefully participate in a small way towards making a difference for survivors of domestic violence in NWA and towards providing community education regarding what healthy relationships may look like.”
