The best kind of nights out are the ones that also give back! Book the sitter and grab your tix to Baltimore Child Abuse Center’s Be a Hero After Party at the Lord Baltimore Hotel Speakeasy. Delicious desserts, open bar, silent auction, live music by Soundtown Baltimore, and lots of fun surprises. The night out for a cause takes place on April 28th at 9 PM — right after the organization’s sold out gala event.
Why support BCAC? They first opened their doors to Baltimore children and families in crisis in 1987 in response to growing awareness that sexually abused children were not only suffering the lasting effects of abuse, but they were also being re-victimized by the lengthy and often repetitive investigative process intended to help them. BCAC has since developed a coordinated response that has resulted in timely, child-sensitive investigations.
Year after year, BCAC helps approximately 1,000 children and their families by providing free services to ensure a healthy recovery. They not only provides services for victims of child abuse, but has expanded to help children who have been sexually assaulted, victims of human trafficking, victims of internet exploitation, medical exams for children entering foster care, and witnesses to homicide.
They do the work that might be hard to talk about — but we all should be.
Dessert, drinks, and helping to keep Baltimore’s kids safe? Date night or Girls Night Out perfection. Plus it starts after bedtime — so you can even read the kiddos a bedtime story before you leave for the evening. (Or enjoy dinner at your fav restaurant beforehand!)
