Our Birthday Luncheon held in the Spring each year enables us to supply a Birthday gift for each child in the San Bernardino Foster Care System. We believe that all children should feel loved and honored on their Birthday. The number of children in the foster care system has continued to increase and so has the need for presents! For some children, this is the only gift they receive. Over 6000 gifts were collected and distributed last year. The Birthday Luncheon also collects funds for our quilt fund project. Quilts are distributed to children who are served and treated at the Assessment Center facing the trauma of child abuse. They offer comfort and warmth to abused children who are in crisis.
Our Annual Auction held in November of each year kicks off the beginning of the Holiday Season with a delicious luncheon, a live and silent Auction , and an opportunity drawing for fabulous prizes. Money raised through ticket sales, auction items, and opportunity ticket sales enable us to donate to Children's Fund over $75,000.00 each year. Bonne Meres has raised and donated to Children's Fund over a million and a half dollars to date. For more information about this year's auction, please email BonnesMeres@gmail.com.
