It’s all for the kids! Hog’s and Honeys Valentines Benefit to help Mission Kids is revving up for their 9th annual party at the Valley Forge Covention Center. The proud hosts of this Happening party are Sue and Sam Gardy of KickStart Motorcycles in Norristown. Over the years KickStart and Mission Kids have worked side by side to help raise awareness and funds for the victims of child abuse in and around Montgomery County. They have made it their duty to protect those who cannot protect themselves. To provide them with safety, an open ear, a loving heart, and all the resources, facilities and professional services that they can offer. The Valentine’s Benefit Party was designed by KickStart Motorcycles with proceeds going directly to The Mission Kids. Year after year it has brought some of our community’s finest businesses and residents out for a cause that we can all relate to. Montco Happening is so thankful to be a part of this event for the first time. We know that with your help, the 2013 Benefit Party will be the best year yet!!!
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.
