"The meaning of life is to find your gift.
The purpose of life is to give it away."

As we chose our theme for Cheers for Charity 2024, we wanted to celebrate our past accomplishments and rise to the occasion for our community.  "Step Up and Raise Your Glass" exemplifies our successes and our commitment to the future.


The State of Florida currently has over 25,000 children in foster care. Over 600,000 throughout the U.S. Almost 50% are 5 or younger.

6 % of all children in the U.S. will find themselves in the foster care system before they turn 18.

The most recent statistics show that
9% of children age out of the foster system annually at 18 years old, and a majority left without the emotional and financial support necessary to succeed in life that other children can receive within a family.

25% of youth aging out did not have a high school diploma. By the time foster youth are 24, only half of them will have stable and steady employment. The same percentage develop substance abuse.

Compared to their peers, male former foster youth are four times as likely to commit a crime. Females are
10 times more likely.  

The needs of our community are great and we are thankful, with your help, to partner with some of the most dedicated and committed organizations in the Tampa Bay Area. These charities aim high and accomplish astounding results. We are so grateful to all who will join us as we step up and offer help to those who need it.
