Kickoff 4 Kids

kickoff logo for web3It's time to rollout our 5th Annual Kickoff 4 Kids fundraiser to be held on Thursday, October 19, 2017, at the SRC Arena on the Onondaga Community College Campus.

Thank you, to Sugarman Law Firm, for being our returning GAME DAY SPONSOR for 2017!

Join us for this football-themed event featuring our popular "tailgate-style" food and brew competition among local restaurants and microbreweries.  Each place will offer their best tailgate food fare or craft beer selection.  Everyone votes for their favorites along with a panel of Celebrity Judges.  Besides the competition, enjoy an open bar featuring wine, beer, & soda, a fantastic silent auction, live music, and fun entertainment including tailgate games and a photo booth.

Take a look at the video clip below for a preview of what you can expect!

Grab a friend!  Mark your calendars and purchase your tickets today!

We are still in need of sponsors for this great event.  Click Here to review our Sponsorship Opportunities. For more information or questions, please contact Patty Maio Mullin, Fundraising and Special Events Coordinator.

Best of all, you will be helping to end child abuse in Onondaga County.  Proceeds from Kickoff 4 Kids directly benefit our Center as we provide services and a path to healing for nearly 700 sexually or physically abused children in Onondaga County each year.
