Jambalaya and Jazz Silent Auction

Lynch130_digital_crop_57As a business leader, you impact our economy and quality of life on a daily basis. Now you have the opportunity to help us improve the lives of children and families. Adoption Option Inc., Child Welfare Organization (AOICWO) provides more than adoption services. We impact this community by also providing Foster Care, Licensing Foster Parents, Family Preservation, and Youth Services.

Our Family Preservation Services consist of evidence-based parenting education with the goal of reuniting families with their children when possible. When it is not possible for children to safely return home we offer adoption services. In 2017, we provided services to more than 500 adults and more than 800 children in the following areas:

As a nonprofit organization, we depend on government grants to provide funding for our services, but that funding doesn’t cover all the necessary resources. Through our Annual Jambalaya & Jazz fundraiser we work towards gaining sponsorships and Silent Auction donations that assist us in filling the gaps to fund the services that we provide to families in need.

You can help by supporting this great annual event where community leaders step forward to help change the lives of children and families.  Our 5th Annual Jambalaya and Jazz Cook-Off is held on Thursday, November 8, 2018 from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm, at the Great Hall Convention Center in Midland. Don’t miss live Jazz performers, a Silent Auction and sampling food from your favorite Great Lakes Bay restaurants who will compete in three separate Cook-Off categories: Jambalaya, Comfort Foods and Desserts.

            Will you consider donating an item for the Silent Auction which will help enable us to serve Michigan’s children and families in need? For more information, call (989)-839-0534 or email JambalayaandJazz@aoicw.org. Adoption Option Inc. is a nonprofit organization and therefore tax exempt, any donation is deductible by using 43-2017657.

Thank you in advance,
