Purchase a ticket for the Lee County
“Make the Night Bright” Fund Raiser

Currently, in Southwest Florida, approximately 40% of the 1,442 children needing a Guardian ad Litem volunteer advocate, don't have one.  This means 575 children don't have an advocate, a “voice” in court.   YOU can be an advocate for these children by attending our Lee  County event!

Tickets are $125 or two for $175.  Dress is resort casual.   Sponsorships are available.

Here's what you can expect when you attend ‘Make the Night Bright for our abused, neglected and abandoned children in Lee County on March 1, 2014, 6:00 – 8:30 p.m., at the Southwest Florida Museum of History in Fort Myers.

Proceeds from this event will be used to fund:

  • Recruitment, training and retention of Guardian ad Litem volunteer advocates who become the child’s “voice” in court, in school and in the community;
  • Kids Being Kids Program which gives our community’s most vulnerable children a sense of normalcy by providing a cozy bed, emergency/supplemental clothing, happier birthdays, participation in sports, the arts and social clubs, academic tutoring, summer camps, medical needs…everything that helps them “fit in”!
