Benefit Concert for Sex Trafficking Survivors
Thursday at 6:00 PM CDT
Venue is outdoors; come prepared for rain or shine! Additional overflow parking is across the street.
In the greater Chicagoland area, 16,000 - 25,000 women and girls are sexually exploited every year. Of the few that are rescued or able to leave and get help, 80% will go back to the violent chaos of the sex trade if there are no long-term restorative programs available for them.
Refuge for Women Chicago (McHenry Co.) breaks through the darkness of sex trafficking to bring hope, healing, and restoration to sexually exploited survivors through long-term residential healing programs. Survivors are offered 12 months of holistic care (at no cost to her) through 24/7 compassionate staffing as they heal from trauma.
Will you be the reason survivors find freedom and restoration?
Refuge for Women's Benefit Concert on Thursday, May 25th, will feature live music from the talented Jon Rand Band to raise critical funds for survivors healing at Refuge for Women.

About Jon Rand Band
When Jon Rand moved back to Illinois from Montana, he knew music had to be a part of his daily life. Together with his lifelong friends, Amy Kuester (vocals), Jeff Muilkens (guitar), Sean Woitas (drums) and Chael Tiller (bass), they began playing their favorite cover songs all over the Northwest Suburbs in every venue they could find. They found immense joy in being a cover band, yet their real passion was songwriting as a team. Eventually they named themselves Jon Rand Band and went on to record a 4-song EP of original material (with much more to come!).
Jon Rand Band are fueled not just by the love of music, but even more by their love of connection: to each other, to friends and family, to God, and to every person they meet at every show. For them, music is a language that unifies every person of every background, and the joy they’ve found on the stage is one that grows with every gig.
Jon Rand Band is incredibly honored to play for Refuge For Women's 2nd Annual Benefit Concert! They are so impressed and inspired with the daily work that Refuge for Women do, and are excited for others to be equally inspired and support such a great organization through this benefit. "Though the need is great," the Band says, "the love, faithfulness, and diligence of Refuge For Women is bringing healing and restoration all over; and with the support of our local community, the light will only shine brighter and brighter."
