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.
