The Second Annual Pints for Peace will be held on Oct. 9 at SturmHaus Beer Market from 6–10 p.m.  In honor of October’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month, SturmHaus Beer Market and Young Professionals Association of Chattanooga are teaming up to raise funds for Partnership’s Family Violence Center. SturmHaus will offer $3 Oktoberfest pints where all proceeds will help victims of domestic violence and their children have access to safe shelter, counseling, job training and educational opportunities.

“SturmHaus is thrilled to host Pints for Peace again this year. It is our privilege to give back to the Chattanooga community and we consider it an honor to support the Partnership’s Domestic Violence Shelter,” says Marsha Sturm, owner of SturmHaus Beer Market. “We strongly believe domestic violence is an age-old problem that destroys families and damages lives; however, with strong community support these families and lives can be rebuilt given the proper guidance, education & resources. Come drink a Pint for Peace and help us break violence.” 

According to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Crime Statistics Unit, 78,495 incidents of domestic abuse were reported in 2013.  Tennessee has been ranked tenth and Georgia ninth in the nation for their rates of women slain by men, according to a report from the Violence Policy Center. One in every four women will experience domestic violence in her lifetime and women who are 20-24 years of age are at the greatest risk of nonfatal intimate partner violence, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
