Home Start’s virtual Blue Ribbon event raised nearly $100,000 to bolster its efforts to strengthen families and prevent child abuse. The broadcast focused on family bonding and included games and prizes, powerful testimonials, a live auction, and a catered dinner that was delivered to viewers’ homes.

“Home Start’s board of directors and I are incredibly grateful for the many individuals and businesses who supported our most important fundraiser of the year. These funds are being transformed into life-changing services to help vulnerable local children and families face the unprecedented challenges wrought by the pandemic,” says Laura Tancredi-Baese, Home Start CEO.
