Children’s Foundation of America annual fundraiser Saturday
The Children’s Foundation of America will host its annual ChariTea fundraiser on Saturday, May 21, at the Women’s Club of Claremont garden, 343 W. 12th St., beginning at noon. The event will be held in recognition of National Foster Care month.
“Over 400,000 children are in foster care each year due circumstances beyond their control. These children have faced the trauma of abuse, neglect, or abandonment and continue to endure challenges participating with their peers in everyday activities and accessing educational resources,” the events description read. “Make a difference in their lives by supporting the Children’s Foundation of America.”
The group hopes all will join in to support a great cause as proceeds from the annual fundraiser benefit scholarships, mental health programs, transitional housing, quality foster care services, and grants for children in need.
Guests will get to have their photo taken by Jacqueline Legazcue, enjoy a silent auction and take home a gift bag featuring name-brand beauty products. Guests will also enjoy a musical performance by Katie Ferrara.
Cher Ofstedahl, CEO of Children’s Foundation of America and Trinity Youth Services, will be recognized as Claremont’s 2022 Woman of Distinction by the Office of California Assemblymember Chris Holden.
The event is open to all and general admission begins at $50. Tickets can be purchased online at eventbrite.com/e/c-haritea-fundraiser-national-foster-care-month-tickets-294019880377.
