NIBLEY — The Malouf Foundation raised $33,619 during this year’s fourth-annual Art for Citizens Against Physical and Sexual Abuse (CAPSA) art auction fundraiser, with all proceeds benefiting the organization and its mission to end domestic abuse.
More than 100 guests enjoyed the benefit dinner held on Nov. 8 at the Malouf headquarters with a cocktail reception and chef’s tasting prepared by Malouf Executive Chef Courtney Larsen.
Guests bid on 48 pieces of original art pieces donated by renowned artists, including oil paintings, sculptures, photography, and a landscape painting by featured artist Larry Winborg.
“Art for CAPSA brings our community together for an important cause,” said Kacie Malouf, co-founder of Malouf and a Malouf Foundation board member. “We recognize our dedicated employees and our generous community members for making this event a huge success.”
Last year, CAPSA sheltered more than 300 Cache Valley women, children, and men from domestic abuse, and provided specialized counseling services to over 388 individuals. They continue to maintain a no-turn-away policy—inspiring other shelters across Utah to do the same.
“Every donation to CAPSA is tangible evidence to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault that someone cares about them,” said CAPSA Executive Director Jill Anderson. “Abuse is isolating and scary, but a caring community gives them the courage to start their healing journey. With these funds, we can provide our clients with support, expertise, and tools to be free from abuse.”
The Malouf Foundation continues to host multiple events each year to raise awareness for causes and their charity partners.
Beginning in January, the Foundation will begin the year by holding their fifth bi-annual Forging Freedom event in Las Vegas at the World Market Center.
Founded in 2016, the Malouf Foundation is a registered nonprofit 501(c)3 organization dedicated to bringing comfort to community members by helping several local charities to provide comfort and care for victims and their children and families in need.
The foundation’s banner cause is to fight child sex trafficking and exploitation. Through key partners and its parent company, the foundation gives 100 percent of its resources to the people it serves.
