The Construction Association of South Florida (CASF) hosts an Annual Charity Golf Classic to benefit two local children's charities. Children's Aid Club has worked closely with CASF since 2006 and has been the recipient of their generosity. CAC club members organize raffle, silent auction, and live auction items for the golf tournament and provide volunteers for the day of the event.
Children's Aid Club
Sends out Very Special
CAC has been a beneficiary
of the CASF Annual Golf Classic, which has more than DOUBLED the reach of CAC in the community.
We are looking forward to Thursday, May 12th, 2022 when we will help support the next CASF Golf Classic
100% of the proceeds goes directly to helping children and their families.
Our major fundraiser is our Valentine's Taste 'n' Tell Lunch, held annually. This is a unique event featuring a menu of 5-6 items. Our guests are given a small recipe booklet that "tells" them how to prepare the items. Taste ‘n’ Tell also features a bake sale, a silent auction, a live auction, and raffle baskets of goods and services donated by generous people and companies in the community. 100% of the profits from Taste ‘n’ Tell are put back into the heart of the community.
"WE ARE ALL HEART!!
Like many other nonprofit organizations, the Children's Aid Club had to think outside the box to keep our mission going during these unprecedented times. We made many adjustments, especially in our fundraising efforts. We had two ZOOM Virtual Events. They were Fun-raising successful experiences. More about that is listed in our Hearts in Action section tab above!!
We want to thank all of our loyal friends and donors for their continued support for CAC! We were so thrilled to produce our 2022 Taste and Tell Luncheon with the coordination of the magnificent new Lauderdale Yacht Club! Everyone had so much fun, and the love was abundant! We are looking forward to next year’s event already!
Children's Aid Club would like to extend a Heartfelt THANK YOU to our SPONSORS who have shown us just how important it is to continue our work.
During 2019-20 CAC was able to provide "immediate response" to 35 families, which included 77 children . CAC paid rent to avoid eviction, utilities to avoid cut off, car insurance, car repair or gas cards for work
transportation; provided clothing, coats, uniforms, shoes for children in need at various times in the year and
gave food gift certificates to help relieve finances and be sure to have food on the table. During the Covid-19
pandemic we provided financial assistance to many families who had been laid off.
2021 EASTER BASKETS
Our Easter Basket team works diligently and safely as we continue to prepare Easter Family care packages.
This past Easter, we prepared baskets for 95 families reaching 180 adults and 272 children.
This past Christmas we fortunately
were able to make families in crisis have a little brighter season. This happened through partnerships with other nonprofit organizations we partner with and our generous donors through our Holiday Appeal Drive. We reached 101 families, which included 280 children and 189 adults. Extra special care was taken while preparing the gifts for these families.
A BIG HEARTFELT THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS DONORS!!
