It was a record year for the Sleep Tight PJ Party at Hacienda Sarria in Kitchener.

Over $10,000 was raised to help victims of human trafficking, which is a record for Sleep Tight, which held its fifth annual fundraiser on Thursday.

The funds will go to Restorations, which provides specialized, holistic, long-term care to victims of commercial sexual exploitation in this country.

Sleep Tight founder, Meaghan Martin said her goal was to sell 150 tickets and raise $5,000.

"I'm so moved by the support of our community and shared passion in helping those impacted by this heinous crime." Martin said in a release.

"My hope is that guests left with more knowledge on how they can assist victims and awareness that this crime impacts some of our most vulnerable," she added.
