San Diego CA— Home Start, a nonprofit organization dedicated to child abuse prevention and providing evidence-based family strengthening services, successfully raised nearly $100,000 from its annual “Blue Ribbon” event held on Saturday, May 8th. This year’s event was titled “Blue Ribbon Broadcast for Bright Futures – It’s a Family Affair,” and was held virtually via Zoom. The theme played on the important family-bonding time that historically happens when families are gathered around a television enjoying famous shows.
“Home Start’s Board of Directors and I are incredibly grateful for the many individuals and businesses who supported our most important fundraiser of the year. These funds are being transformed into life-changing services to help vulnerable local children and families face the unprecedented challenges wrought by the pandemic,” shared Laura Tancredi-Baese, Home Start’s Chief Executive Officer.
Attendees were treated to an exciting night of games and prizes, a “fun box,” and a catered dinner that was delivered to their homes ahead of the virtual event. Previous and current Home Start clients also shared their powerful testimonials with guests and discussed how they were positively impacted by the organization and its life-changing programs. Additionally, a live photo booth and a live auction took place during the program, highlighting amazing travel packages to Dubai, Hawaii, and the Pocono Mountains made possible by airline and resort partners.
