|Event Details:||The Fund for Alexandria’s Child (FFAC) is hosting the “Families Helping Families: From Our Home to Yours Virtual Gala” on August 12 at 8 p.m. to help enrich the lives of children in foster care during this critical time in their development.
This is the second virtual gathering the Fund has hosted for the annual event.
The free, interactive event will include a raffle, an online auction, special guests and more. Those interested can buy a raffle ticket, register for the event, participate in other ways and support the Fund if unable to attend. Tickets are free, but guests are required to pre-register.
All funds raised will directly benefit children in foster care or at risk for abuse and neglect, helping to ensure that each child has their basic needs met and providing life-enhancing and enriching opportunities that many of these children miss out on, like dance, art or karate lessons, summer camping, school field trips, scouting and team sports. The Fund also purchases emergency bedding, back to school supplies, holiday gifts and basic housing needs, such as comforters or kitchenware for youth aging out of the foster care system.
Moreover, the Fund does significant promotion to supporters and the community.
|Audience:||Anyone may attend|
