Chatuge Restaurant Donates Share of Dinner Revenue to SAFE
On March 9, The Oaks Lakeside Kitchen, located on the grounds of the Ridges Resort on Lake
Chatuge, celebrated International Women’s Day by contributing ten percent of its restaurant
revenue to Towns/Union County Support in Abusive Family Emergencies (SAFE). This
restaurant also provided a 20% dinner discount to women.
SAFE’s mission is to provide support, advocacy and emergency shelter to victims of domestic
abuse, child abuse and sexual abuse and to heighten community awareness of abuse in Towns
and Union Counties.
This non-profit charity has two thrift stores: The Blairsville SAFE Thrift Store which is located at
3196 Highway 515 in the Victoria Shopping Center and The SAFE Again Thrift Store located at
4134 Bonny Hills Drive in Young Harris. The proceeds of these thrift stores helps fund the
operation of a SAFE House which houses victim families.
