11th Annual Healing Hearts Luncheon: Be a Champion for Children

Tuesday, April 2, 2019 | 11:30am – 1:00pm

Riverhouse on the Deschutes | 3075 N Hwy 97, Bend, OR 97703

On April 2, 650 members of our community came together to raise nearly $160,000 for the prevention, evaluation, and treatment of child abuse in Central Oregon.  This was made possible by our sponsors listed below, Table Captains, guests, and volunteers.

If you would like to see the video that we showed at the luncheon, click here. This is one family’s story shows how people like you are changing the lives of children and families in Central Oregon!

Children affected by abuse wish and hope that an adult will speak up for them when they can’t find their own voice. We hope that Lauren’s story has inspired you to be a voice for children. Even if you do not know for sure or even just suspect abuse, speak up. Get educated. You can be a champion for children and their families.

If you would like information about being a Table Captain or Sponsor for our 2020 Healing Hearts Luncheon, contact joni@kidscenter.org or 541-306-6063.
