TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault (SACASA), is hosting a one-day only event to help survivors of sexual assault and abuse. 

It is pretty easy for the public to help out with this fundraising effort - all they have to do is go out to eat.  This will be the 18th year for 'Dine Out for Safety', with 14 local Tucson restaurants participating.

Dine Out for Safety is a unique and fun community-wide event that encourages the community to support survivors of sexual abuse and assault. 

It is pretty easy, just gather friends and family and go out to eat.  The restaurants that are participating will donate a portion of Wednesday's sales to SACASA.  In turn, the group will give 100 percent of the proceeds to support survivors of sexual assault and abuse in the Tucson area. 

Shocking statistics according to the Southern Arizona Center Against Sexual Assault - every 13 seconds a child is abused; one in six women will be sexually assaulted in their lifetime; someone is affected by sexual violence every 2.5 seconds.
