A unique gala event to benefit Friends of Children.
At Friends of Children, we do whatever it takes to improve the lives of children and young people in the foster care system. Our programs include: Statewide advocacy at the legislative level for a more transparent and accountable foster care system; Group mentoring and community development programs; Individual volunteer advocacy in courts and schools; and Donations projects to provide school supplies, winter coats and extracurricular experiences.
Friends of Children is never out of reach for a child navigating foster care; we are always here to help. But we can't do it alone: we need your support.
Every year, we throw an upbeat event to celebrate our community and raise much-needed funds to benefit the children and young people with whom we work. It is our great joy to once again pair the excitement of a fabulous party with the important stories of those we serve. This event generates a significant portion of our operating funds, and is crucial to our work. Please join us for the party of the year! Bid, eat, drink, dance ... and help us make 2018 the best it can be for vulnerable young people in our community.
