It’s all for the kids and it”s back for a monumental year! The Hogs and Honeys Valentine’s Benefit Party for Mission Kids will be celebrating their 10th anniversary fundraiser this February at the Valley Forge Casino Resort. The proud hosts of this happening party are none other than Sue and Sam Gardy of KickStart Motorcycles. Over the past 9 years they have managed to raise an enormous amount of funds for Mission Kids with help from thousands of local supporters, volunteers and contributors. Collectively, they have all made it their duty to protect those who cannot protect themselves. To provide our children with safety, an open ear, a loving heart and all the resources, facilities and professional services they need.
Not only did last years benefit party bring over 600 people to the Valley Forge Casino Resort, it helped raise more than $24,000 for local children in need. However, we know that with your help the 2014 fundraiser will be the biggest and brightest yet. Tickets for this event are officially sold out but there’s still lots of way you can help make a difference. Donations are always much appreciated and can be made here. As always, proceeds from the 10th annual Valentine’s Benefit Party will go directly to help support the children of Mission Kids.
More About Mission Kids
Mission Kids offers a comprehnsive, centrally located, multi-disciplinary team response to allegations of child abuse in a dedicated, child friendly setting to achieve justice for child victims and promote their physical and emotional well-being. Mission Kids also provides neutral, fact-finding forensic interviews which are coordinated to avoid duplicative interviewing and supports Montgomery County’s approach to child abuse investigation and intervention. The criminal Justice system can be an intimidating and unfriendly place, even as an adult. But imagine what it is like for a child immersed in that frightening world because he or she has been the victim of abuse.
Without Mission Kids, the criminal justice process for these child victims may include multiple, lengthy interviews with varied individuals- police, councelors, law enforcement, attorneys that would force a child to recount and sometimes relive the traumic incidents from their young lives. Mission Kids has made it their life’s work to make sure these children are getting the attention and care they deserve and need. All so that they can grow and thrive in an environment filled with possibility, while always being surrounded by people who love and support them. Click here to learn more about the Mission.
