LETHBRIDGE - A local artist will be bringing a unique light to childhood trauma.

Torre Marie will be hosting the Yellow Dress Gala. The night will showcase her art, also featuring an auction with the money going toward the making of "The Yellow Dress - A Story of Hope" documentary.

Marie describes the series as "an artistic expression of healing from childhood trauma, specifically sexual abuse", and is used to lend a voice to survivors.

She hopes the video project can help Canadians share their stories while changing the culture of support across the country.

Tickets are available for $40 at voicefound.ca/events, or by calling Torre Marie at 403-915-5696. The evening will also include refreshments, entertainment from local musicians and a dance number from Dance Works. Cynthia Bland, Voice Found CEO, will be the special guest.

The gala takes place on Friday, March 18 at the Galt Museum Viewing Gallery.
