Turning Point prepares for ‘Not-so-Newlywed’ event

Five local couples will put their marriages to the test Thursday when Turning Point Domestic Violence Services puts them in the hot seat for its new fundraising event.

At the “Not-so-Newlywed Game,” Tom and Tina Vujovich, Joe and Lisa Shafran, Fred and Kathy Armstrong, Charlie and Jayne Farber, and Hutch and Kevina Schumaker will answer questions about each other to prove just how well they do know — or do not know — their spouse.

Mickey Kim will serve as the evening’s emcee.

The event will start with a reception at 5:30 p.m. at the Columbus Learning Center, 4555 Central Ave., and the game will start at 6 p.m.

A short presentation of Turning Point’s annual report will precede the game.

Tickets are on sale for $20 a person, with all proceeds going toward Turning Point services. They can be purchased at MainSource Bank, 529 Washington St., or at the Doug Otto Center welcome desk, 1531 13th St.

A special audience participation portion of the game also will raise money for Turning Point.
