On Saturday March 4, 2017 Cynthya & Ken Schmidt were honoured as this year’s Guardian Angels in front of a record 330 guests, at The Children’s Foundation’s annual gala that raised a new record of $136,000. The Guardian Angel Award was created 17 years ago to recognize philanthropic leadership of individual(s) and groups and we could not think of two (2) more deserving angels within our community to honour. Congratulations, Cynthya & Ken.
We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank all of our exceptionally generous sponsors and donors and our guests. Please know you are truly directly impacting the lives of so many children locally through your generosity. To our lovely co-chairs, Martha Farrell & Sherry Archer, thank you for the endless hours you devoted into making this special evening shine as brightly as the stars and as our two newest Angels, Ken & Cynthya. Thank you to our wonderful committee and amazing volunteers who helped to make this evening into the success it was. On behalf of our Board of Directors, staff and especially the children we serve, we thank each and every one of you for your dedication and commitment ~ together, we are Helping One Child At A Time!
