12th Annual Healing Hearts Luncheon

Be the light, help a child shine!

Monday, April 6, 2020 | 11:30am – 1:00pm (Program starts at noon)

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

For over 25 years KIDS Center has been hearing, helping and healing children and families impacted by child abuse.  

Your participation in this luncheon will make the next 25 years possible, helping children heal and preventing others from ever being abused.

Child abuse happens in secrecy across all races and ethnic and cultural backgrounds regardless of education and social economic status.  90% of child abuse victims know their perpetrator – he/she is most often a trusted family member or friend. Children face terrible violence, neglect and abuse every day – even in Central Oregon.  To prevent it, stop it and give children the chance to heal from it, the entire community needs to know the facts, be willing to talk about it, and DO something about it!

Do you want to Be the Light and Help a Child Shine?

If you do, please participate in our Healing Hearts Luncheon. There are three ways to help make a difference: attend as a guest, be a table captain, or become a sponsor!

Attend As a Guest

We’d love to have you join us! There is no charge for the lunch; however, this is KIDS Center’s annual fundraising event and 0ur goal is that every guest will make a gift in any amount that is meaningful to them. Please RSVP by emailing joni@kidscenter.org or calling at 541.306.6063.

Become a Table Captain

Table captains are the heart and soul of this luncheon. Invite nine of your friends to join you as a guest at your table in 2020! Email joni@kidscenter.org or call 541.306.6063 or click here for more information.

Become a Sponsor

We hope you will partner with us to help children and families in our community. Please consider becoming a sponsor for our 2020 Healing Hearts Luncheon. For more information, email joni@kidscenter.org.

Can’t attend the luncheon but still want to help a child shine?

Be a Table Captain

Do everything a Table Captain would do, but ask one of your guests to act as a Table Captain Host in your absence…all they need to do is go a bit early, greet guests, and hand out envelopes at the end of the luncheon when requested to do so by the speaker.

Be Virtual Table Captain

Simply ask your friends and family to make a gift to KIDS Center!  We will give you sample asks. Email joni@kidscenter.org or call 541.306.6063 for more information. Or, click here to create your online fundraising page in 3 easy steps.
