Friends of Women’s Resource Center (WRC) will gather at Vista’s Shadowridge Country Club on Feb. 12 at the 8th Annual Have a Heart Luncheon. WRC provides housing and support to women who are building a new life away from domestic violence and/or sexual assault. The luncheon will include a presentation from Rebecca Leo, local author of “The Flaws that Bind” – a memoir-novel based on her own experiences as a survivor of domestic abuse.

The mission of Friends of WRC is to provide positive, enriching, and memorable experiences for the children of mothers residing in the WRC transitional and shelter housing through their fundraising and advocacy activities. All proceeds from the luncheon go directly to benefit WRC’s residents and fund services such as counseling, activities, new equipment, and more. A reservation flyer can be requested from Colleen O’Harra by emailing or calling 760-806-4651. For more information visit
