We are excited to announce our 2019 There’s No Place Like Home Inaugural Fall Gala to benefit the Guardian ad Litem Program. This inaugural gala is presented by honorary chairs, Dorothy & Ric Bradshaw and Event Chairperson, Robin Henderson. The gala will take place on Saturday October 19, 2019 from 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. transforming Jonathan’s Landing Clubhouse,
16823 Captain Kirle Dr, Jupiter, FL 33477 into our very own Emerald City.
We all recall the pivotal scene in the Wizard of Oz where the Good Witch Glenda gently leads Dorothy in the mantra, “There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home...” Dorothy’s yearning for home is like that of the children we serve through the
Guardian ad Litem Program (GALP).
As the exclusive non-profit support of the local GALP, our mission is to provide 100% one-on-one child advocacy accomplished through the almost 625 Guardian ad Litem (GAL) volunteer child advocates serving the greater than 1,700 children involved in abuse, abandonment, and neglect cases in our county. Volunteers are paired with children and then advocate, investigate, mentor, and report on their behalf, remaining consistent through multiple placements and difficult transitions. The GAL advocate becomes the eyes and ears of the presiding judge who will make critical decisions regarding the child.
We are so proud of our program and the work of the Guardian ad Litem staff and the volunteers who donate thousands of hours and drive hundreds of thousands of miles each year to ensure the best outcomes for our community’s most vulnerable children. Only through your support, is the Palm Beach County Guardian ad Litem Program able to continue to appoint volunteer advocates to positively impact the lives of these children.
Please consider serving as a sponsor or donating an item for the silent auction for our 2019 There’s No Place Like Home Fall Gala to ensure that we put an end to innocent children being ill-protected, at-risk, and unsafe. Help us to bridge the gap and reach as many children as possible. A Sponsorship Form is included for your convenience. Select your desired package and help change lives!
We are sure you will agree that each child deserves a loving home, a warm bed, and the comforting arms of a caring loved one. You can help a child live that reality as they repeat the heartfelt affirmation, “There’s no place like home.”
