What’s Happening-November 2018
The Stars Aligned at Blue Tie Gala
Because of your incredible generosity, we were able to exceed our fundraising goal and raise $393,000 for Children’s Bureau’s child abuse prevention programs.
The fact that we beat our goal is truly something to celebrate, but even more worthwhile is the knowledge that this money will help 40,000 at-risk children and their families this coming year.
Thank you to our Blue Tie Gala sponsors, donors, event committee and attendees for your support and contributions.
