Join CAPS for a Partnership For Children ribbon tying ceremony
CAPS is helping celebrate an unprecedented collaboration among youth-serving agencies in Elkhart County on May 27 at Bashor Children's Home.
It's almost time for Vines, Steins & Stills!
CAPS is preparing for its annual summer auction fundraiser event 6:30 to 10 p.m. Friday, June 12, at the Northern Indiana Event Center (at the RV/MH Hall of Fame) in Elkhart.
Each year, our auction helps fulfill the mission of CAPS -- to ensure every child lives a life free of abuse and neglect -- by raising money to pay for program operations and by engaging donors, volunteers and community leaders to spread the message of Happy Kids, Healthy Families.
This year, CAPS will present The Friend Of The Child Award to Lippert Components Inc. for the wonderful philanthropic work that Lippert employees do throughout the community to make Elkhart County a better place for children to grow up.
In addition, the event will feature a live auction and a high-end silent auction, as well as fine wine, beer and spirit pairings with hors d'oeuvres.
Tickets are $100 per person, open bar and wine/beer/spirit tastings included. Sponsorship opportunities are also still available for this gala event. Contact Development Director Stacey Anderson at 574-295-2277 or firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seat or sponsor Vines, Steins & Stills.
