Events

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 one of the following events as we have fun while making a difference!

Annual Meeting – Appreciation Dinner

Advocates for Children starts each year by thanking donors, volunteers, corporate partners, and other supporters of the organization at our annual appreciation dinner. Community members gather to celebrate the previous year’s accomplishments, look forward to the year ahead and recognize some of those who dedicate themselves to Advocates’ mission of preventing and treating child abuse in all its forms.

AT&T Golf Tournament

The AT&T Corporate Real Estate Operations Charity Golf Classic is in its fifth year. This annual event has raised more than $130,000 for Advocates for Children and its numerous programs that seek to prevent and treat child abuse in all its forms. This year’s AT&T Real Estate Operations Property Management Charity Golf Classic will be held Oct. 4, 2018 at Windermere Golf Club in Cumming, GA.

Duck Dash 5K and Fun Run

The Duck Dash is the longest consecutive-running road race in Bartow County with one of the fastest and flattest courses around and is suitable for runners of all ages and abilities.

Duck Derby

The Duck Derby is a really quacky concept. To win the Grand Prize of $10,000 cash, all you have to do is adopt a duck. Duck Adoptions range in price from $5-$250. Each duck you adopt will be released into the lake at Terminus Wake Park for the big Duck Derby. Quacky and his friends will put on a wake boarding show, pulling the winners from the water as they go. The first duck to be pulled from the water at Terminus will win the $10,000 grand prize.

Every Child’s a Star

At this time the Every Child’s a Star fundraiser event is on hold. Thank you for supporting this event for the past several years.

Giving Tuesday

What is #GivingTuesday?

We have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, November 27, 2018, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

 

Spring Benefit

The annual Spring Benefit event raises money through an evening full of fun combined with silent and live auctions. Live auction raffle tickets are available to anyone interested and those who cannot attend the event are still able to bid in the silent auction from home. Our dessert dash is always a fun way to start the live bidding portion of the evening and leads to great entertainment and competition.

Join us on March 23rd, 2019!
