Victim's Picnic celebrates survival

July 22, 2005

Albany- From playgrounds to picnics, today's victims of sexual crimes and their families are getting more support than ever before.

District attorneys from the Dougherty County District Attorney's office are working with Open Arms to have a family and friends of victims picnic.

The event will have food, music, games and fun and they are asking the community to work with these victims to show they support them.

Assistant District Attorney Greg Edwards said, "It takes a village to raise a kid, so we are asking that everyone contribute to the well-being of these kids."

The event was by invitation only, and will be the first of many.
