Come learn about sex offenders and learn new ways to identify how they manipulate families and communities. Nationally 300,000 cases of child sexual abuse are reported every year, with fewer than 5% of child victims ever telling anyone.  Few offenders are ever caught because they work extremely hard to   rehearse their defense as well as silence and seduce their victims.
You can help prevent child abuse!



Join us for the 4th Annual Dueling Pianos event to benefit LifeHouse and child victims in our community!

This is a high energy, unique piano concert. There will be comedy, audience interaction and lots of fun! Hors d'oeuvres, cash bar, silent auctions, raffle prizes, door prizes and more!

Saturday, September 24, 2016 at the Arab Shrine Temple, 1305 S Kansas Ave in Topeka.
- Doors open at 7:00pm
- Pianos begin at 8:00pm
- Tickets are $30 each.

Contact LifeHouse for tickets or purchase tickets online at
A limited number of reserved tables is available for groups of 8 or more. Call LifeHouse for details.
