Last year, with the help of many partners, The Anna’s House Foundation’s Gumdrops and Lollipops Ball raised more than $300,000. Those proceeds allowed for the continued development of the AHF Foster Care Community in Luther, OK. We would be honored if you would help make this event a great success again in 2017.
The 6th Annual Gumdrops and Lollipops Ball, a black tie event, will be held at TheChevy Bricktown Events Center on Saturday, September 23th at 6:00 p.m. Our whimsical candy-themed atmosphere, live and silent auctions, dinner, cocktails, and dancing will help raise awareness and donations for foster children in Oklahoma. Our goal is to raise funds for general operations and the eighth home in the AHF Foster Care Community!
Our mission is to provide stable and loving foster homes for children in state custody. We know that by providing these children with a solid, nurturing foundation, they will be able to form healthy bonds and attachments that will benefit them into adulthood. Currently, there are more than 10,000 kids in foster care statewide, approximately 2,000 of who reside in Oklahoma County. Since just last year, a fourth home in the AHF Foster Care Community has neared completion, and funding has been secured for the fifth home. Additionally, 54 children have resided in the Community, and over 128 children have been placed in the care of AHF families throughout Oklahoma County and contingent counties.
It is the goal of The Anna’s House Foundation to change the future for Oklahoma children in foster care through this unique project. Please help us make a difference and become a sponsor or donor for Gumdrops and Lollipops 2017!
