Established in 2009, the Children’s Hero Awards honor community members who have shown incredible foresight and leadership in providing services and access to those youth who have suffered child abuse and neglect in Miami-Dade. This year, Family Resource Center will present three awards to prestigious leaders who have made a difference in the lives of foster children.
Harve Mogul, CEO of United Way of Miami-Dade will be honored with the Childrenâ€™s Hero Award for his leadership in advancing programs that make children and families in crisis stronger, safer and more stable.
In recognition of his sentinel contribution to the child welfare system in the State of Florida, Alan Abramowitz, Executive Director of the Florida Guardian ad Litem Program, will be honored with the Childrenâ€™s Advocate Award.
And Katherine W. Ezell, a Partner at the law firm of Podhurst Orseck, P.A., will be the recipient of this yearâ€™s Childrenâ€™s Volunteer Award for her extraordinary volunteer efforts as a Guardian ad Litem, a pro-bono child attorney through Lawyers for Children America, and leader of Foster Care Review.
From 6:30-7:30 you can sip on a signature Childrenâ€™s Hero Cocktail while you check out a one-of-a-kind silent auction called Trips, Travel & Leisure. This auction will feature an amazing assortment of getaways here and abroad as well as sports tickets, spa pampering and fine dining. Make sure to snag something fabulous. From there, enjoy an elegant three course dinner and a Live Auction featuring unique experiences and travel destinations.
All proceeds generated from the evening will go towards providing hundreds of newborns, toddlers, adolescents and teens with the shelter, food, medical and mental health care that they need due to experiencing abuse, neglect and abandonment by their parents.
