“Believe in the Magic of SAFEchild” Benefit Gala Raises More Than $80,000 in Support of Child Abuse Prevention


Last week friends and families in the community joined together at Raleigh Country Club to celebrate 20 years of SAFEchild’s efforts in Wake County and to help provide for future programs and services. Through ticket sales and silent and live auctions, attendees raised more than $80,000 to support SAFEchild’s mission of preventing child abuse and neglect. This inspiring show of support will directly affect the lives of thousands of children through SAFEchild’s efforts to strengthen and support families who are struggling to provide nurturing home lives for themselves and their children.

Thank you to all who participated—your efforts will have a meaningful impact on future generations.
