RAV gives $11,000 to Project ReNeWal shelter

The season for giving continued on New Year’s Eve for Project Renewal when Judge Nancy Bills gave a check for $11,000 from proceeds of the 2014 Race Against Violence. Vickie Stevenson, Executive Director from Project Renewal, expressed gratitude. The funds will help fill gaps of services offered to victims of family violence throughout Rockdale, Newton and Walton counties. Judge Bills, who serves as the Rockdale County State Court Judge and Chair of the Rockdale County Task Force Against Family Violence thanked the more than 300 RAV registrants, 50-plus sponsors and approximately 60 volunteers. The 6th Annual RAV, also a Peachtree Roadrace qualifier, will be October 24, 2015 before the Olde Town Fall Fest. For more, go to or contact Derek Marchman at 678-938-5799.
