Race To End Child Abuse: A Kentucky Derby Day Gala

The Children’s Advocacy Center of Bristol County will be holding its 8th Annual Kentucky Derby Day Gala Event on Saturday, May 6, 2017 starting at 5:00 p.m. The event will take place at The Country Club of New Bedford located at 585 Slocum Road, Dartmouth, MA. We anticipate another successful year with many supporters in attendance.

With the support of our sponsors, we will continue to provide services to children and intellectually disabled adults who have been victims of severe physical abuse, witness to violence or sexual abuse. Any donation to The Children’s Advocacy Center is a well-chosen contribution that will help our efforts in assisting the many who rely upon our services.
