As you may know, I am a member of the Board of McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to ending child abuse through intervention and prevention education. The organization offers a safe child-friendly process for abused victims and their families, and is committed to reducing trauma, fostering healing and advocating on behalf of all child victims.
It is likely that we all know or have known someone who could have benefitted from the services provided by McMahon/Ryan. Statistics show that one in every ten children has been sexually abused at some level of their lives.
This year we will be celebrating the Second Annual Kickoff for Kids fundraiser on October 2, 2014 at the SRC Arena at Onondaga Community College. The Kickoff will include your favorite “tailgating” food, a silent auction and lots of fun entertainment.
Please consider supporting this worthwhile cause by being a sponsor, volunteering your time, making a donation for the silent auction, purchasing tickets ($50), and/or placing an ad in their full color program.
McMahon/Ryan also provides Darkness to Light training, which trains people to recognize symptoms and signals of child abuse. Please visit www.mcmahonryan.org for additional information their programs or events.
Thank you in anticipation for your support of McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center. If you are interested in supporting the Kickoff for Kids, please contact Linda Cleary, Executive Director at 315-701-2985.
