A surf inspired gala celebration supporting foster youth and families

by Kids & Families Together

We are excited to share with you our 2022 sponsorship opportunity for our upcoming fundraising event at the Crowne Plaza Ventura Beach on the evening of Saturday, November 5th, 2022 … “Fostering the Next Wave”

Founded on January 1, 2000, Kids & Families Together (K&FT) has been serving foster, adoptive, kinship, and birth families throughout Ventura County. For over two decades K&FT has become the leader in providing critical services and support to children who have experienced trauma, abuse, neglect, loss, and multiple placements.

Recently, we’ve had the great fortune to connect with an up-and-coming local non-profit, More Than Conquerors Surf (MTC Surf). MTC Surf, founded in 2020, serves foster​ youth in Ventura County by providing them with the opportunity to experience freedom, joy, and confidence through the gift of surfing. MTC Surf’s mission is to provide foster youth with the ultimate surf experience in a safe and fun environment while encouraging personal growth, community, and faith. MTC Surf desires that every child and teen that surfs with them would know that they are fully loved and capable of conquering any current and future challenges they may face.

With our common connection of both organizations providing programs and services for foster, adoptive and kinship families, we decided it would be perfect for us to collaborate on a joint fundraising event that we are calling… “Fostering the Next Wave”.

This will be the inaugural year for this event, and we want this to be a very fun, yet casual (gala-type) event overlooking the sunset of Surfers Point.  We’d love for it to be an event where people will gather to share their love of surfing, while helping to raise money for two organizations that are providing support and services to some of Ventura Counties most vulnerable children.  Guests will enjoy a buffet style dinner, drinks, gorgeous sunset views, surf-inspired music and short films, silent auction, and a hula performance by “Hula Anyone” https://www.hulaanyone.com/ .

Your donations will be doubled! All funds raised from this event (including sponsorships and ticket sales) will be matched dollar-for-dollar by a generous donation from a private family foundation!
