On October 14th, we invite you to walk with us in a day of the life a Caregiving Youth! We’re bringing back our annual fundraising gala, Heart & “Soles”. In the absence of public dollars for this growing and hidden population of children, Hearts & “Soles” was born to raise funding and to help others understand what it is to walk in the shoes of a Caregiving Youth. This year, the gala has adopted an opulent Western theme.
The AACY team believes that it takes a community to raise a child. In that spirit, Robin Bernstein of Palm Beach, who is a former Caregiving Youth as well as former US Ambassador to the Dominican Republic is the Honorary Chair.
This one-of-a-kind event will be Co-chaired by Jeff F. Gordon and his wife, Gay Gordon. Jeff is Vice Chair of the AACY Board and has been a Board-Certified Civil Trial Lawyer since 1993. He practices law with the Lesser, Lesser, Landy, & Smith firm. He and Gay have been foster parents since 2010 for 19 children and remain active in numerous community ventures. Joining us as a special guest Emcee for the evening will be Frank McKinney, 7x best-selling author, real estate artist, and philanthro-capitalist.
This dream team, along with others from AACY, would like to meet and have fun with at this year’s event on Friday, October 14th at Quail Ridge Country Club in Boynton Beach. In addition to contributing to the primary purpose of raising needed funds to continue and expand the work of AACY, you can ride a mechanical bull, line-dance, enjoy a medley of Southern fare, listen to contemporary and country music, and even get locked up in jail!
AACY invites you to don your finest Western attire and celebrate the night away, all to benefit Caregiving Youth. Sponsorships are available for those who wish to promote their services and support a great cause. You can learn more about this event and purchase your tickets at $200 by clicking here.
