Healing Hearts Luncheon: Raising Hope and Healing

9th Annual Healing Hearts Luncheon

April 6, 2017 at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes

On April 6th, nearly 600 members of our community came together to raise over $156,000 for the prevention, evaluation, and treatment of child abuse in Central Oregon.  This was made possible by our sponsors listed below, table captains, guests, and volunteers. We deeply appreciate your support!

If you would like information about being a table captain or sponsor for our 2018 Healing Hearts Luncheon, contact jgullixson@kidscenter.org or 541-383-5958.

During the luncheon, The Bend Children’s choir inspired guests with their moving performance. Guests were also able to view a video about one family’s journey through healing. Please enjoy the two videos below.

Keeping kids safe takes an entire community. As adults, it is our responsibility to speak up for children – they deserve to be safe, protected, and free from the horror and trauma of abuse.  While many are able to survive and live a normal life, many more are left with a life consumed by pain, trauma, and suffering that all too often leads to abuse across generations.

Children affected by abuse wish that an adult would speak up for them when they can’t find their own voice. Even if you do not know for sure, please speak up. Get educated. When you speak up, you are saving not only the direct child victim, but their entire family.
