We are just one week away from our 15th Investing in Our Children Luncheon scheduled for October 18, at the Providence Omni Hotel. Each fall, we ask you, the Children’s Friend community, to join us and 250+ of our friends—donors, corporate sponsors, community partners, and legislative representatives, as we gather to support families in need right in our own community.
This inspiring event gives us the opportunity to illustrate our mission in action and share the impact of your support. It is also an opportunity to celebrate the corporate partners who help us do our work each and every day and who have been pivotal in supporting the agency’s mission throughout the years.
On October 18, the 2017 Friend of Children Award will be presented to The Providence Journal for their long history of investing in Rhode Island children. For over twenty-five years, The Providence Journal has supported capital needs of the agency, helping to build family support centers; sponsoring families during our annual Holiday Drive, and donating essential unrestricted dollars for family-centered services. In addition, their commitment to providing opportunities for underprivileged children, both through The Providence Journal Summertime Fund TM and The Providence Journal Holiday Fund, has helped to support countless families in need throughout the years. They are also a longstanding community partner, encouraging philanthropy throughout their readership to further their impact.
Thank you to our many sponsors who have raised funds in support our children and families–100% of the proceeds raised on October 18 will make the difference in a child’s life.
I hope to see you at this year’s luncheon!
