ChildNet re­cently held a “Cir­cle of Sup­port­ers Cock­tail Mixer” at Tilted Kilt Pub & Eatery in Fort Laud­erdale. The mixer gave at­ten­dees the op­por­tu­nity to meet like-minded cham­pi­ons, vi­sion­ar­ies, ad­vo­cates and part­ners work­ing to­gether to make a dif­fer­ence in the lives of abused, aban­doned and ne­glected chil­dren.

Dur­ing the event, ChildNet board chair­man Si­grid McCaw­ley gave a spe­cial in­tro­duc­tion for Sarah Thomas, a for­mer foster child who shared her story of liv­ing in the foster care sys­tem and how ChildNet helped give her a bet­ter fu­ture. Thomas now serves on the board of di­rec­tors for ChildNet. ChildNet Pres­i­dent/CEO Emilio Ben­itez and sev­eral of ChildNet’s board mem­bers were also in at­ten­dance.
