Supporting Orphan Children

As you may know I am currently serving as president of Friends of Adoptive Families. We are a non-profit organization comprised of adoptive parents from the Northeast Ohio area that are committed to improving the lives of orphaned children around the world. We will be hosting our annual Evening at the Races Fundraiser on March 6th. If anyone is interested in purchasing tickets or race horses please let me know. Horses are $35.00 and winners receive a $70 pay out. You do not need to attend the event to own a horse. Event Tickets are $25 and include dinner, beer, wine, and dessert. We have a section reserved and hope lots of you join us for a fun night out!!

Just last week I had the opportunity to visit the Korea Social Services orphanage and see first hand efforts of our organization. This year our priorities include, increased funding to help medically fragile children receive much-needed surgeries and specialized medical care in hopes that it will reduce their wait time for a forever family. We also want to continue funding in-country service projects, as well as purchasing basic need items such as: diapers, formula, educational materials and playground equipment.
