The North Central Missouri Children's Advocacy Center will be holding its 4th Annual Champagne & Diamond Dinner and Dance fundraising event. Lauhoff Jewelry has generously committed to donating another beautiful item of diamond jewelry for this event. People often ask, “What can I do to help abused children?” The best answer is “support, however you can what we do.” All of our services to these children and the agencies involved in the investigation and protection of children are at no cost to them. These children are the foundation of your communities. Do whatever you can to strengthen the foundation where it’s needed most. Those not behind the scenes have no idea what it means to them.
Based on our 2012 statistics, the majority of the children seen at the Advocacy Center are present for sexual abuse, are female, under the age of 10 with a male offender, over the age of 18. The offender is most often a natural parent or other relative. These cases are done in secret, without witness or physical evidence, making them extremely hard to investigate. At the very least the Advocacy Center wants to see these children obtain resiliency and cope with these often traumatic events. Your support allows the Advocacy Center to provide counseling and other services for these victims at no cost to the child and family.
Please help us continue these services for these children by attending (or donating) to our event, investing in your community. Social hour is between 5:00-6:00 p.m., dinner is at 6:00 p.m., with dancing and a live auction of themed gift baskets to follow. Tickets will be available for purchase at Lauhoff Jewelry in Trenton & Chillicothe, Chillicothe Country Club or The Children's Advocacy Center at 906 Main Street in Trenton, MO. For more information or to donate a themed basket to be auctioned off, call 660-359-2874 for Stacy.
The North Central Missouri Children's Advocacy Center assisted the Trenton Downtown Improvement Association in their annual Chili Cook-off. A portion of the proceeds from this event went to the Advocacy Center in support of their efforts of serving abused children. A total of $401.56 will go to the Center for continued service to children. Thanks to all who participated because it certainly was fun!
