BLUE RIBBON GALA 2019
APRIL 27TH 2019
ST PETE YACHT CLUB
6:30 PM TO 11:00 PM

It is that time of year for the Angels to start the ball rolling for our Annual Fundraiser, our famous BLUE RIBBON GALA. Every year we have an event that is not only beautiful and memorable, but everyone walks away knowing who we are and what we do! This year our theme is “What’s Behind the Mask – HOPE – and it will be a night to remember.

There are several documents we are including in this month’s Newsletter that will be very helpful to the Angels if we can get an early start on Donations and Sponsorships. We would love to have a sell-out for this event by March 1st 2019 and we need 35 sponsors to make that happen.

FOR A BETTER TOMORROW – THIS IS WHO WE ARE FOR THE CHILDREN WE ADVOCATE FOR

December 2018

Santa is making His Way From the North Pole
to our neighborhood to put smiles on the many faces of the children we adopt over the Holidays. CHRISTMAS is such an important time of the year to put smiles on the faces of these children who often have little to smile about and thanks to you, and your generous hearts there will be plenty of smiles on Christmas Morning.

Our list was BIG this year and as of this writing, we have all but 10 children out of 200 that have been adopted. That is AMAZING and we are so GRATEFUL….
God Bless Our Angels

A bell’s not a bell ’til you ring it.
A song’s not a song ’til you sing it.
Love in your heart wasn’t put here to stay.
Love isn’t love ’til you give it away

TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING COMMUNITY HERO SPECIAL NIGHT TO REMEMBER!

Click here for more information!

 

Tampa Bay Lightning Foundation & the Vinik Family Foundation

Dear Tampa Bay Lightning Foundation and the Vinik Family Foundation and also, Elizabeth Frazier, who makes this night happen! There are no words to describe what this honor means to me both personally and for my Angels. This past Wednesday evening will be a memory that I will hold dearly to my heart forever! I knew the night would be special, but never did I think it would be the most special night I could have ever imagined. I have never thought of myself as a Hero to anyone and never was one that liked recognition, but Wednesday night was so special and so meaningful to me that there are no appropriate words to describe how I felt and still feel. From the moment I walked into the Arena until I left, I felt like a princess. Not only was the Lightning Family amazing, but the Jabil staff was so amazing and made all of our guests feel so welcome and so special. Everything about the night was perfect and I know that you, Elizabeth, are the behind the scenes person that pulls it all together.

Mr. Vinik, Thank you so much for all you do for the many Heroes and in our community. It must be so gratifying to help so many people in our community with this amazing award.

From the bottom of my heart, Thank you!

Sandra Lee Kearney, Founder
Angels Against Abuse Inc.

The Tampa Bay Lightning Community Hero Event
Wednesday, November 21st 2018

I would like to thank each and everyone of you for your support and generous hearts over the years to the Angels. Wednesday Night November 21st, 2018, will be a night that I will remember for the rest of my life. It is such an honor to be a recipient of the Tampa Bay Lightning Community Hero and have such an amazing experience that I was given! The true Heroes in our lives are the children and youth we advocate for everyday in hopes of giving them Hope for a better tomorrow. Our amazing team of Angels are my heroes who make the Angels soar and without them we would not be able to impact the lives of these children who need all the love and support that we can give them. So from me to each of you “Thank You” for blessing my life and making such a difference!
