August Affair 2015 - Around the World in 21 Days


Around the World in 21 Days

WOW!  What a night.

Many, many thanks to the hundreds of guests who joined with Family Nurturing Center for our 21st annual August Affair.  

Our guests enjoyed one of the region's best and largest silent auctions, along with a limited live auction of unique experiences, sporting events, and autographed memorabilia.  Through the years our guests have raised more than a half a million dollars for child abuse treatment, prevention and education programs and services.  Unfortunately, there are still children and families in need.

Jeff Thomas from Jeff & Jenn on Q102, spoke to the crowd of the impact that child sexual abuse had on him as a child and throughout his life.  His brave words engaged the crowd for how we all can be part of the change to end child abuse through our actions, reaction and response to such a taboo topic. Following his impassioned speech, guests demonstrated their support for Jeff and Family Nurturing Center through our fund a need paddle raise which brought in thousands of dollars in a matter of minutes.

This was the first year that we went hi-tech will all auction bidding being done using smart phones and the results have been incredible.  Thanks to some incredibly generous guests every auction package found a home and we reached our goal of raising $60,000 for our mission to end the cycle of child abuse.

Guests danced the miles away to the great sounds of Swampthang who once again amazed us with their incredibly talented singers and musicians.

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors for their support with a huge shout out to BB&T and Pomeroy.  Thanks for your belief in Family Nurturing Center!!
