Superior, WI (NNCNOW.com) - People at Barkers Island are dancing to end abuse this New Years Eve.

The Center Against Sexual and Domestic Abuse held their fourth annual fundraiser to help raise money for the shelter.

Music by a string quartet started the night followed by the "Fractals" a band organized in the northland.

There was also a silent and live auction.

The fundraiser will help CASDA continue to provide services for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and child abuse.

Currently, the shelter can only serve three families at one time.

However, the shelter is undergoing some renovations and hope to serve up to ten families at one time.

"We purchased the old east end clinic building out in east end, and we just finished renovations in our lower level that will hold our community programs and administration, and our main level will be our shelter program," said Erika Leif, assistant director of CASDA.

The group hopes to have the renovations completed by March.
