Bidding on Brighter Future Gala and Auction SEPTEMBER 21, 2013 2

Sep 21st 5:30 pm - 11:00 pm




The Kiwanis Club of Batavia, in conjunction with the JFCAC GLOW Foundation, is hosting the 3 rd Annual Bidding on a Brighter Future Auction and Gala. This event is a long-term effort of the club to raise the funds necessary to purchase a new, permanent home for the Justice for Children Advocacy Center (JFCAC) in Batavia, NY. The Center has been assisting child victims of abuse for over fourteen years, and has served over 1600 victims during this time. Services for these children include medical examinations, forensic interviews and counseling, all of which allow every child’s voice to be heard in a caring and compassionate setting. The JFCAC affords families of child victims the ease of accessing comprehensive services without having to navigate the confusing web of multiple human service and governmental  aencies on their own. The JFCAC serves the entire GLOW region and provides services at no cost to victims. The Center relies solely on grant funding and donations to support their work. As awareness of available services increases, the number of children served by the Center grows year after year, and the Center is increasingly challenged to accommodate these needs. As grant funding diminishes, the importance of reallocating funds such as those budgeted for rent is ever more important, so that these dollars can be used instead to provide direct service to children. A new, larger home must be acquired, and the Kiwanis Club of Batavia has pledged to raise the funds necessary to make the dream of a new home become a reality. Please consider supporting the Kiwanis Club’s efforts at the 2013 Bidding on a Brighter Future Auction and Gala through an inkind donation, sponsorship or by placing an ad in the program. Your contribution will support the efforts of the JFCAC and Kiwanis simultaneously. This year’s Gala and Auction will be at The Forum at Genesee Community College on September 21st, 2013. We hope that you will be able to join us and help us reach our goal of providing the Justice for Children Advocacy Center with a new home.
