Thanks to our INCREDIBLE COMMUNITY, our 10th Anniversary Event of Blue Ties & Butterflies was a huge success. Thank you for allowing a survivors story to be shared, for filling the room with passion and purpose, and bringing transformational healing to child abuse victims. Year after year we are blown away by our community and can never say thank you enough. To reflect on a beautiful evening, please click below to watch out recap video!
The Child Protection Center’s signature event is a beautiful evening that local philanthropists and advocates look forward to year after year. Since the Inaugural Blue Ties and Butterflies in 2013, this event has raised momentous awareness and support to our mission by ending the silence and secrecy of child abuse in our community. We invite you to join us for this truly remarkable evening and see first-hand how your support brings transformational healing to abused children- much like the transformation of a butterfly!
Passionate supporters of CPC have given a $100,000 match to kick-off our paddle raise! Thanks to Keith Monda & Veronica Brady, joined by the Williams Family Foundation, Bob & Lin Williams, Brian & Sheila Jellison Family Foundation, Travis & Kathy Brown and an anonymous donor!
Thank you to our 2023 Sponsors!
