The Kansas Children’s Service League will sponsor its Red Stocking Breakfast to Benefit Wichita children and families from 6:30 to 9:30 a.m. Thursday, the league said in a news release.
The fundraiser benefits healthy families, child abuse prevention and education programs, the availability of mental health services for children and families and the Parent Helpline (1-800-CHILDREN).
While many of these programs are federally or state financed, and some receive additional support from United Way and other grant sources, all rely on the Red Stocking Breakfast funds to fully serve their area.
KCSL prevention and education programs are designed to help keep children safe and families strong, according to Cornelia Stevens, South Central Region Director for KCSL.
The breakfast will be at Carlos O’Kelly’s, 7703 East Douglas. All proceeds will help support KCSL’s Wichita-area Prevention and Education programs. Carlos O’Kelly’s and U.S. Foods donate all the food for the breakfast; 100 percent of the money raised benefit KCSL programs and services. The event features a breakfast buffet served by local “celebrities.”
Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 at the door (children age 10 and under eat free). Advance tickets are available online at www.kcsl.org.
