You are invited to CONNECT: a virtual tasting event featuring locally crafted beer, honey wine, and ginger ale from Richmond’s own Garden Grove Brewing and Urban Winery! After you’ve had some fun and discovered a new favorite drink, CBS 6 anchor Bill Fitzgerald will host a brief, informative program about how you can help kids and teens in Virginia’s foster care system.
The pandemic brought the entire foster care system to a halt: without children attending school or other activities, cases of abuse and neglect went unreported; without the courts open, children’s adoptions had to wait. Unfortunately, we expect many new children and teenagers will enter foster care now that schools have reopened.
You can make a difference in a child’s life! CONNECT is a chance to spend time with friends, try a few new brews, and support a critical mission: helping every child in central Virginia’s foster care system take flight with a permanent, loving family. Your ticket or sponsorship gift will enable JFS Connecting Hearts to find 250 new foster, adoptive, and kinship families in Central Virginia to welcome children from foster care into their hearts and homes.
