Florida’s Children First (FCF), the statewide advocacy organization focused on protecting the legal rights of at-risk and foster care children, will recognize Broward County child advocates and former foster children at FCF’s 12th annual Broward awards reception today, Thursday, February 27, 2014. Community and business leaders, and all other persons concerned about the future of Florida’s abused, abandoned and neglected children, will be in attendance. The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the 110 Tower in Fort Lauderdale.
Receiving the 2014 “Child Advocate of the Year” award is the Children’s Services Council (CSC) of Broward County. The CSC is focused on Broward’s children by providing leadership, advocacy and funding for services for and on behalf of children. Forever Family Bella’s Group will receive the special “Youth Inspiration Award.” Created by Isabella and Gabriella Glazer, two young girls who have overcome great adversity, Forever Family Bella’s Group has become a profitable charity group that encourages and permits children who are raised by their grandparents (or, sometimes, other relatives) to interact with other children who are in similar circumstances.
Among this year’s “Youth Advocate Award” recipients are Taevon Pierre and Aaron Dames.
The 110 Tower is located at 110 SE 6TH Street in Fort Lauderdale. A $100 contribution is suggested, with all proceeds to benefit Florida’s Children First. To RSVP, call 954-796-0860, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can visit www.floridaschildrenfirst.org.
