Champions for Children Awards Dinner 2017

The San Fernando Valley Refugee Children Center will be hosting Champions for Children Awards Dinner on Friday, March 17, 2017.

This event brings advocates, government representatives, and other supporters for refugees and immigrants for a combined awards and fundraising event. The program will feature California Senator, Ricardo Lara, an advocate for immigrants’ rights as keynote speaker. Honorees will include Congressman Tony Cardena, CEO, and Founder of Penny Lane Centers, Ivelise Markovits, and Reverend David Farley of Justice & Compassion Ministries, Cal-Pac Conference.

Besides raising much-needed support for the center, the organizers hope to create awareness about the refugee crisis. The educational component will include a compelling short video illustrating the work accomplished at the center and informational material.

Pastor Fred Morris, Board of Directors President, explained, “Kids are fleeing for their lives. Thousands of children don’t make it through the journey.” Children are fleeing their homeland, not because of economic reasons but searching asylum from gangs. The center provides refugee children with legal representation. Without an attorney, children are sent back to face certain death.

The Board of Directors along with the leadership team from San Fernando Valley Refugee Children Center invite the public and community to take part in the event. There will be an opportunity drawing for a Hawaii vacation as well as other auction items including Maroon 5 items during the event.

The San Fernando Valley Refugee Children Center, Inc is one of four Welcome Centers in California established under Cal-Pac’s You Are Not Alone initiative.
