I'm hosting this VIRTUAL Event this year because I believe in the Carousel Center's mission and want to be an advocate for HOPE!

2021 Heart of the Matter & Tinman Awards
Annual Luncheon & Fundraiser – Virtually

This Carousel Center fundraising event raises much needed funds to give our most vulnerable citizens the time and attention they need to heal, with evidence-based intervention and evaluation protocols, gentle therapies and more. Join me with your donation to help build resilience in child abuse survivors and provide exceptional service to children and/or their families in New Hanover, Brunswick and Pender Counties.

Your donation stays right here in our community and helps change lives.

Here are a few examples of how the Carousel Center will put your gifts to work:

$100 You can provide one session of child therapy services for children who have experienced sexual/physical abuse and/or neglect, so they can concentrate on doing the hard work of healing, and get back to the business of childhood.

$500 You can provide education to 62 adults in our community to empower them to prevent child sexual abuse through awareness and stigma reduction.  

$1000 will provide 1 complete Child Forensic Interview and Child Medical Exam used to pursue justice.

$10 Be G.E.M. Give $10 a month = $120 a year! You can provide healthy snacks for child/siblings during initial visit and through weeks of trauma focused healing therapy!

$50 will provide much needed tools used during healing therapy such as art supplies, games, coloring books to help children do the hard work of healing.

With a grateful heart.
