EVENT DATE Dec 18, 2016
Caring for a child is one of the most important things a person can do. Caring for a child that is not biologically yours requires a special kind of dedication. There are many children in Southern Nevada who are unable to remain in their homes. Families who open their homes and hearts to these children are committed to improving their lives and their futures. FOSTER CHANGE is committed to those families.
Foster Change is a 501c3 non-profit organization committed to the empowerment of foster, adoptive, and kinship families in Southern Nevada. We want a system that produces happy, healthy children in happy, healthy families.
Christmas Crooner, a very special holiday show benefiting Foster Change, will take place in Las Vegas on December 18th. My name is Marc Donovan, and I am the creator/star of this show. I also happen to be a foster parent. My wife and I have been attempting to adopt through the foster care system for a few years now. It has been an emotional roller-coaster we could never have predicted, with many highs and lows, including having to say goodbye to children we love along the way.
When we took a baby boy home from the hospital over a year ago (his adorable feet are pictured with ours in the photo), we could never have imagined how deeply in love with him we'd fall. He is 15 months old now, and we desperately hope to adopt him in the near future. Through our journey, we have been inspired to become advocates. We aim to bring much needed awareness and financial support to an overwhelmed system that simply doesn't have the resources to meet a staggering demand. There are over 3,000 children in foster care in the state of Nevada alone, and not nearly enough families willing and able to care for them. The goals of this event are:
- to raise awareness about foster care
- to help Foster Change give existing foster families the support they need, and encourage new ones to open their homes and hearts
- to help expand the definition of what makes "a family"
- to give the community of Las Vegas and their families a great afternoon of holiday entertainment.
If you are going to be in Las Vegas on Sunday December 18th, please buy a ticket(s) for Christmas Crooner, and let that be your donation (www.ChristmasCrooner.com). But if you are unable to attend or just want to contribute a bit more, here is where you can help. We are presenting 50 VIP tickets to the show to foster/kinship/adoptive families who could use an afternoon of entertainment, and for a cause that could make a real difference in their lives. Help us cover that cost and beyond, so we can turn a huge profit, and hand it over to this great organization. You can contribute any amount for any reason, but here are some suggestions:
- $45 buys one standard ticket
- $75 for one VIP ticket
- $150 for a 2-pack of VIP tickets
- $300 for VIP tickets for a family of 4
- $450 for VIP tickets for a family of 6
Thank you for helping FOSTER real CHANGE!
