Dear Friends in the Community,
It is with great excitement that we invite you to participate in the 3rd annual Clara’s Secret Shepherds Foundation Fundraising Event called “Clara’s Kids”!
Clara’s Secret Shepherds Foundation was founded in 2011 to honor the memory of Clara Eagan Zabriski, a little girl from Jupiter, Fla., who liked to help people. The Foundation continues the family’s annual tradition of purchasing Christmas gifts for in-need children in Foster Care. And, thanks to events like Clara’s Kids, we are extending our reach year round, providing services that foster caregivers and children so desperately need to enrich their lives, from eye glasses, basic toiletries, dental assistance, senior high school yearbooks, to duffel bags for children that turn 18 and need to pack for their next move.
In the past 12 months, the number of Palm Beach County children removed from their homes has spiked by 50 percent -- from 690 to 1,046.
This event offers something for everyone in the family and your circle of friends:
Extensive silent auction, raffle, dinner, beer and wine (cocktails available for purchase at bar), variety of children's crafts, hosted by Resource Depot. WPTV-NBC's local morning news anchor John Favole will serve as honorary event chair and he will keep the evening moving!
Clara's Kids Event FAQs:
- Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?
No, you just need to print out your ticket receipt (this system allows you to print out a copy). Everyone is welcome to come to the event -- and we will be selling tickets at the door too, so please feel free to come even if you forget to get your tickets in advance.
- What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
There is plenty of parking at Abacoa Golf Club.
- What can/can't I bring to the event?
Bring your family and friends and be prepared to have a great time -- we have kid’s crafts operated by Resource Depot and we have a fabulous and extensive auction for the adults, a raffle, dinner and beer and wine. Drinks are available for purchase at the bar.
- Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, howto donate auction items or to volunteer.
- Are refunds possible?
Unfortunately no. We are a grassroots nonprofit and we are unable to return tickets if your plans change.
- Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
That would be ideal and easier for us at the front desk, but we will have a list at the door to check too. (And, we do plan to sell tickets at the door as well.)
Thanks, everyone. Please tell your family and friends about this local fundraiser -- all funds raised will be channeled right back into South Florida to help kids in need.
See you on Saturday night, Aug. 23, 2014!
