Description

Join us on May 4th, 2019, from 7-10pm for the 6th Annual Cheers4Kids Event! This year, we'll be at Galleria 314 for an exciting evening of lite bites, music, drinks, and the best raffle prizes in town! Gather your friends for another fun night benefitting Foreverfamily's children.

Tickets are $38 before March 31st, $45 until May 3rd, and $50 on event day. Includes admission, open bar, music and light bites.

Cheers4Kids is hosted by Foreverfamily's Young Professionals Board (YPB). YPB believes Ff's work is important because:

  • Over 100,000 kids in Georgia have an incarcerated parent

  • On average, kids live more than 100 miles from where their parent is incarcerated

  • Foreverfamily serves low income families for whom reliable transportation is a challenge--if the Family Visitation Program didn't exist, kids would not get to see their parents

  • The average sentence for a woman in Georgia is 4-6 years; most women are mothers of school-aged children and are non-violent offenders

  • Research shows regular in-person visitation improves outcomes that carry into adulthood

100% of the proceeds from this event will support Foreverfamily's Family Visitation Program. This program serves Atlanta's most vulnerable children-those with incarcerated parents-by providing them transportation to see their incarcerated parent once a month. Foreverfamily provides the children with door to door transportation, breakfast, snacks, a pillow, a blanket and activities for the two-hour bus ride, and trained volunteer chaperones. Kids visit with their parents from 9am-3pm. These visits are pivotal in maintaining a strong, positive relationship between parent and child.

Through this event, we hope to sponsor 360 visits for children! Visits occur monthly from August 2019 through May 2020. In addition to ticket sales, there is an opportunity to support the Family Visitation Program through sponsorship (located below the tickets). All sponsors will be recognized at the event.

**Sponsors who wish to contribute via Foreverfamily's website (www.foreverfam.org/donate) or Pay Pal by texting "CHILDREN" to 797979, will not be charged a processing fee.**

College students and Foreverfamily volunteers can receive $5 off admission and should email julianwyatt91@gmail.com for ticket information BEFORE purchasing their ticket.
