The Junior Board Presents…
A Bootleggers Ball


A Virtual Experience

Friday, June 19th, 2020

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Children’s Place Association had decided to cancel its second planned event – our Junior Board Bootleggers Ball fundraiser, previously scheduled for June 19, 2020 – will now take place as a virtual experience.  Between now and June 19th, your support is vital.  In addition to making a tax deductible donation, we are offering the opportunity to purchase a chance to win a week’s vacation and a Starwood Villa Resort and participate in our online silent auction where you can bid on a variety of fabulous items from come the comfort of your home or where ever you are holding up!  Everyone can play a part in helping support children and families in great need.
