Last Friday evening Beech Acres Parenting Center hosted our annual Foster Care Appreciation Dinner. The event was held downtown at Nicholson’s Backstage Event Center. Parents were invited to dress up, enjoy a nice dinner, and be recognized for all of the amazing things they do. 120 parents attend the event and enjoyed delicious food, great conversation, and good community. 

Community is an important part of all we do at Beech Acres. Our foster care team works hard to make genuine connections with and between our families creating a strong support network for them. The foster care dinner is an opportunity to recognize these families in a tangible way. Childcare is provided by volunteers at Parkside Christian Church parents can enjoy a nice stress-free evening focused on them. Every family receives an incredible gift basket thanks to the generosity of many individuals, organizations, and local businesses. 

Thank you to all of the amazing parents who have opened their hearts and homes to these kids. We are grateful for the love, kindness, and leadership you demonstrate every single day. 

Special thanks to the following individuals, groups, and organizations for their contribution to our gift baskets.
