Come learn about Firefly Children’s Network, an organization that “gives governments, community leaders and international non-profits the tools and best practices to get kids out of orphanages and keep kids out of orphanages.”
Having worked with at-risk youth myself, I can attest that this is one heck of a good cause. According to Firefly, “for every month children spend in an orphanage, they will cognitively, socially and emotionally fall behind their peers by three months.” Tell me of a better cause than this.
Half price cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. That’s French for appetizers, I think. Need I say more? Just point me to the cocktail weenies, give me a boilermaker and I will be set.
