You Can "Change a Child's Story"

You can “Change a Child’s Story” on Oct. 24th at the annual CFACC GALA to help support children in foster care.

Did you know that more than 3,000 children in Cuyahoga County live in foster care or are in supervised custody because it is not safe for them at home? Child and Family Advocates of Cuyahoga County (CFACC), a Northeast Ohio nonprofit organization serving abused and neglected children involved with the Juvenile Court, invites you to learn how you can “Change a Child’s Story” at their annual GALA benefit set for Thursday, Oct. 24 at Sausalito on Ninth in downtown Cleveland. Change a Child’s Story will take place from 5:30- 9:00 PM and will feature a buffet dinner, live entertainment, the chance to bid on dozens of unique auction and raffle packages, and a 50+ bottle wine pull. Tickets are $50 each; $40 for guests who bring a child’s toy, book(s) or winter clothing item worth $10 or more. Valet parking is included in the ticket price. All proceeds benefit the child-centered intervention programs offered by CFACC. Advance tickets available online:
