ChildNet will host the 9th annual “Care for Kids” Reception, presented by Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, on Wednesday, May 22 at the Lauderdale Yacht Club from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.

During the Superhero-themed event, guests will enjoy drinks and appetizers while bidding on their favorite silent auction items.

The event is an opportunity for the Broward County community to rally behind ChildNet, Broward County’s Community-Based Care lead agency that protects abused, abandoned, and neglected children in the community, and shows support for children in foster care.

The Emcee for the event is Eric Yutzy, WPLG Local 10 News Anchor, and the event hosts are Caitlin Stella, CEO of Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital, along with her husband, Todd Stella.

Alec Ingold, fullback with the Miami Dolphins, will be making a special appearance to share his inspiring journey.

In honor of their commitment to ChildNet, Kip Hunter Epstein, CEO of Kip Hunter Marketing, and Joey Epstein, Managing Director of Business Development at LerroSarbey, will be honored with the 2024 Champion for Children award for their hard work and ongoing support of ChildNet and the children it serves.

By supporting this event, you join hundreds of stakeholders who make ChildNet possible. Most of ChildNet’s budget is restricted to specific priorities. The funds raised from the “Care for Kids” event will provide ChildNet the flexibility to prioritize the needs of our children, youth, and caregivers, and take advantage of opportunities that arise and react to unforeseen challenges.

DETAILS: Tickets are $150 each and include the Cocktail Reception, where there will be numerous auction items to bid on. Tickets can be purchased at https://www.childnet.us/events/9th-annual-care-kids-cocktail-reception-childnet-superheroes-cocktail-reception
