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 A HEARTFELT
CAC has been a beneficiary
of the CASF Annual Golf Classic, which has more than DOUBLED the reach of CAC in the community.
We had another successful event on Thursday, May 12th, 2022 when we will helped support this year's 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 selected by a committee of members . 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 with the outcome of the 2023 Taste'n'Tell Luncheon held at the Lauderdale Yacht Club! Everyone enjoyed the delicious luncheon, and had so much fun! So many compliments as our guests departed for home. The love was abundant! We are so looking forward to next year’s event!
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 in the community! We are so GRATEFUL!
During 2021-22 CAC was able to provide "immediate response" to 17 families, which included 52 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.
2022 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 92 families reaching 252 children and 175 adults.
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 68 families, which included 197 children and 123 adults. Extra special care was taken while preparing the gifts for these families.
A BIG HEARTFELT THANK YOU TO OUR GENEROUS DONORS!!
