Annual Events


The Kids Above All Ball is our signature fundraiser held annually in fall. Each year, we celebrate the accomplishments and growth of young people in our care, recognize distinguished business or civic leaders who have helped us place the safety, well-being and education of kids above all else, and raise more than $500,000 to directly support our kids.
