CUMMING, Ga. — Local battered women's shelters received a financial contribution last week.

On Oct. 3, Robert Aiken, senior vice president and managing broker of Harry Norman, Realtors Forsyth/Lake Lanier office, donated a check for $2,400 to Forsyth County Family Haven.

Another check was donated to Dawson and Lumpkin counties' No One Alone Shelter and to Hall County's Gateway Domestic Violence Center.

The donation totaled $7,200.

The money was collected during the Ticket to Ride Benefit Horse Show held July 19 through July 21 at Wills Park Equestrian Center in Alpharetta.

Harry Norman's staff worked with Black Horse Productions to put on Ticket to Ride, the largest show the company has ever seen with more than 170 horses competing in the event.

Since its opening in the county two years ago, Harry Norman has donated about $25,000 annually to charities, Aiken said.

Millie Irizarry, executive director for Forsyth County Family Haven, said the donation will assist with providing housing and outreach services and giving women and children a safe place until they find permanent housing. All 27 beds at their facility are filled.

About 1,200 women and their children come into contact with the organization each year, Irizarry said.

"We feed and provide services so they can return to a life free from domestic violence," Irizarry said. "Anytime we go through hard economic times, we see a rise in victims."
