Each year, Advocates hosts fun filled community events that provide vital funding for their many programs. Thank you for making our fundraising events such a huge success for more than 30 years. Join us at the following events as we have fun while making a difference!

Annual Meeting – Appreciation Dinner

Advocates for Children started the new year of 2017 by thanking donors, volunteers, corporate partners, and other supporters of the organization at the annual appreciation dinner Tuesday. Community members gathered to celebrate the accomplishments of 2016, look forward to 2017 and recognize some of those who dedicated themselves to Advocates’ mission of preventing and treating child abuse in all its forms.

It is the contribution of those volunteers, donors, and partners that makes the organization’s reach even larger Advocates for Children President and CEO Karen White explained during her welcome to the audience. “The one thing that makes this evening special is that each one of us has a shared belief that every child matters and is deserving of a healthy childhood, said White. “Our donors who give generously so that we can offer our services at no cost. Our volunteers who devote hundreds of hours to advocating, mentoring and healing. Our community partners who hold hands with us to create a safety net for our families. And our staff, who work tirelessly and often thanklessly to change lives.”

AT&T Golf Tournament

The 2016 AT&T Corporate Real Estate Property Management Charity Classic was a huge success this year thanks to the AT&T Corporate Real Estate Team, the event sponsors, and the wonderful staff at Woodmont Golf and Country Club.
