ABOUT THE EVENT:
Held every May, the CFCS Annual Circle of Friends Gala and Auction is the largest fundraising event to benefit the organization.
The critical success of our gala is made possible with the generous support of corporate and private sponsors, more than 400 attendees, volunteers, and other donors.
Proceeds from the evening directly support our programs, helping us provide children, youth, and families in more than 100 Massachusetts communities with the opportunities they deserve throughout the year.
The evening includes a cocktail reception, silent and live auctions, and dinner accompanied by a presentation of CFCS' important work in the community. We invite you to host a table of your friends, family, and colleagues, and share with them the feel-good event of the year!
Open Your Home To A Child
The need for loving, nurturing caretakers is greater than ever. CFCS recruits and supports new families who can provide transitional and/or permanent care for children who have been referred to the state foster care system. Learn more.
