The Power of Love

An 80’s themed FUN-raising dance supporting Kids & Families Together

We are thrilled to invite you to join us for our fifth annual fundraising event for Kids & Families Together! This year’s event, The Power of Love ~ an 80’s themed FUN-raising dance, will carry you back-in-time to the decade of the boom box, the mix-tape, the Walkman, and totally awesome dance music!

Who we are and what we do…

Founded in January 2000, Kids & Families Together (K&FT) serves foster, adoptive, kinship, and birth families throughout Ventura County. For over two decades K&FT has been the leader in providing critical services and support to children who have experienced trauma, abuse, neglect, loss, and multiple placements. K&FT is unique in that we provide education, support, and strategies to connect caregivers and parents to the children in their care. We wrap our arms around the entire family allowing them to use the strategies they have learned, along with “The Power of Love”, to raise healthy, nurtured children who thrive!

K&FT provides families with much needed mental health counseling, support, and education that brings direct and meaningful results right into the home. Here is what one kinship caregiver said about their experience working with K&FT.

“I can’t tell you how much I appreciate working with Kids & Families Together. My therapist helped me explain the current situation more fully and thoughtfully to my 7-year old grandson. This has completely altered the dynamics within our home and my relationship with my grandson. Thank You!”

We need you to join us, so we can continue to offer these types of one-on-one connections, supporting children and their families who often find themselves in crisis situations. You will be an integral part of our annual celebration supporting Ventura County foster/resource, kinship and adoptive families. You’ll enjoy a fun-filled evening including food, drinks, silent auction, 80’s trivia and game zones and a LIVE BAND! You will be dancing the night away to your favorite 80’s hits!

Date/Time: Saturday, February 10th, 2024, 6:00pm-10:00pm

Location: Poinsettia Pavilion, 3451 Foothill Rd., Ventura, CA

Live music at the event will be provided by We Are The 80’s Band, Los Angeles’ PREMIER 80’s music cover band! They have performed locally at, The Garage Bar in Ventura, Pocock Brewing Company in Santa Clarita, Margarita Villa in Ventura Harbor, and The Shores Restaurant in Oxnard.

“WE ARE THE 80s is honored to perform at the 2023 Kids & Families Together charity event. This year’s theme, The Power of Love, resonates deeply with our music as we perform many of the greatest hit songs from the 1980’s decade. We support the fantastic work that this organization provides to the families in Ventura County, and the critical services that they offer to abused and neglected children. It’s always a privilege for us to contribute our talents to a worthwhile cause.” – Steve Roth Founder/C.E.O. (Chief Entertainment Officer)/Drummer
