Kids In Distress


IMAGINE a brighter future
INVEST in a better Tomorrow
IMPROVE a Child’s Life

Firstly, my sincere thanks to our amazing board, chairs and members of the KID auxiliary. What a
phenomenal year we had! I cannot wait to see where we go in 2019-2020.

The KID auxiliary is a non-profit organization that in its over three decades of existence, has become a
major donor to the Kids in Distress agency. The auxiliary is a true grass roots venture which is truly
remarkable. None of this could have come to fruition without the very generous financial support of the
hundreds of contributors, sponsors, and volunteers we so rely upon to keep this auxiliary flourishing
year after fabulous year. I am confident that once involved if you are not already that you too will
become inspired as I was.

My goals for the upcoming year are to continue the amazing work of fundraising, creating awareness and
volunteering that these women have been doing tirelessly since 1984. I would like to increase our
membership, increase our social mixers and of course break our fundraising records for the 11,000
children that KID serves.

Our major Fundraiser for the year will be our Hero 5K which will take place on January 25, 2020 at Vista
View Park. This fundraiser raises over $100,000 year after year and we are looking forward to making
this years Hero 5K the best one yet.

Another great event/fundraiser that we always look forward to is our Bingo event. This year our theme
is “Beach Blanket” Bingo and will take place on October 24, 2019. This is a great night of comradery and
“FUNraising” and don’t forget the great prizes too!

I am looking forward to working with the extraordinary members of the KID Auxiliary. I have been
involved in many organizations over the years and have never met more talented, passionate, kind, and
hardworking individuals who come together for such an important cause. If you are not already a
member of our auxiliary, I invite you to attend one of our events, come to a meeting or take a tour of
the agency.

I am honored and excited to serve as your President this year.  I hope you can join me and “Dream Big
With Kid”
