Benefit

Our annual benefit was a remarkable success! We raised more than $920,000 to defend and protect abused and neglected children in foster careWe’re grateful to everyone who helped make this year’s benefit such an outstanding event. Our extraordinary honorees, Paul Yetter and his team at Yetter Coleman LLP and NBC’s Natalie Morales, movingly described their support of CR and what fuels them to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable kids, and several foster care alumni shared their stories with bravery and passion.
