About this Event

Join us for the 9th Annual Heart of the Matter & Tinman Award Luncheon Friendraiser.

Be a Sponsor and host a table (or two) of ten. Support the mission.  You can give the gift of healing, resilience, justice, and prevention.

Be a Table Host - Fill a Table of Ten (FREE) and commit to raising at least $1,000 to support our Mission.

Be a Guardian of Children - Make a donation.  No Tables to Fill. No commitments. Just your support.

Hear the 2024 Keynote speaker, Margaret Hoelzer, American former competition swimmer, Olympic medalist, and former world record-holder and child abuse survivor, who will share how she overcame child sexual abuse and rose to the top of her sport of swimming.

Guests will also learn more about the Carousel Child Advocacy Center and how they can support the mission.

Your sponsorship provides…

  • Resilience – You are helping children heal from a traumatic experience with professional trauma therapies.
  • Justice – Together, we can work towards justice by providing one-stop, coordinated medical evaluation, forensic interviewing, and therapy with a victim-centered approach.
  • A Solution! You are helping educate the community on recognizing the signs of abuse, your responsibilities as a mandatory reporter, and how to respond if a child discloses abuse. 

Carousel Child Advocacy Center is the only nationally accredited child advocacy center serving Brunswick, New Hanover, and Pender Counties. Carousel serves children from birth up to age 18. All services are provided in a nurturing, child-friendly, and safe environment regardless of a family’s ability to self-pay.
