THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU
FOR ANOTHER AMAZING MAD HATTER TEA PARTY!
The 9th Annual Child Advocacy Expo is Friday, October 6th 2017
PLEASE REGISTER TODAY IF YOU HAVE NOT ALREADY
This event has been a popular event for the last 8 years and our attendance is low this year! We realize that having three major hurricanes knocking at our door gave us quite a challenge in the month of September, but as we get life back to normal, we want to extend this invitation to our community partners to try to make this valuable networking event. Please help us get the word out since this event is this Friday! We will announce during this year’s Expo, the 2018 date so everyone can get it on their calendars. We will also be asking your support to get other agencies that have not attended in the past to get involved. There is nothing more beneficial than TEAM WORK and especially when it deals with children and youth. When we all pool our resources and work together, the impact is much greater and we can accomplish more together than apart! The Angels need your SUPPORT.
For those that will be participating this Friday, please note that there will be NO assigned tables like past years and NO passport. Instead, to make it easy on everyone, when you check in, just find an empty table for all your material to setup. Every table will have one ticket already on the table when you arrive which will be used for the $500 donation drawing from Angels Against Abuse. So hang on to that ticket in case you are the lucky winner! Please note…
ONLY participants representing their agency is eligible for the drawing.
We look forward to seeing you this Friday.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR WONDERFUL VOLUNTEERS FOR MAKING
THE MAD HATTER TEA PARTY
ANOTHER SUCCESSFUL EVENT!
September 23rd, 2017 was another spectacular day for the hundreds of children who ran through the Rabbit Hole to a magical event, our famous Mad Hatter Tea Party. It was another goose bump moment for all of us who participated and had a chance to experience the smiles on the faces of the children who often have little to smile about! This could not have happened without the many volunteers who showed up to make everything perfect. I would like to personally thank Kathy Mitcheson for her tireless energy in chairing this event for so many years. Also, Christina Wyckoff returned this year and helped to make all the details fall into place perfectly. A BIG thank you to our Volunteer Coordinator Jennifer McGarry who made sure everyone knew what they were doing and made sure they were doing what they were assigned to do. There were so many wonderful volunteers and kids helping kids, like Admiral Farragut and The Kind Mouse, and Bella’s School and so many more.
What WONDERFUL NEWS to hear at the event that the Sunshine Kiwanis Club of St Petersburg announcing that they will be taking over this event as we move forward. Thank you so much Allen Yergovich for making this happen, and also thank you so much for Sunshine Kiwanis giving us years of Hat Making fun for the hundreds of kids who attend this event. It is one of our most popular activities that you have provided for so many years. When the announcement was made that they will keep our Mad Hatter going for the hundreds of children that look forward to this event every year, there was a lot of cheering and clapping from all of our guests who look forward to this event every year. This is such a gift to the Angels, and a HUGE compliment that Kiwanis feels this event provides such an impact on these children that they believe in it enough to keep it going! ALL the Angels will be there for whatever you need to volunteer our services. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
WHAT A BIRTHDAY WISH COME TRUE FOR ME! On my Birthday, September 23rd, my last day as the Mad Hatter! It was a bitter sweet moment for me, to pass the baton to a new Mad Hatter, we don’t know who yet, but have some ideas cooking. It was an amazing Birthday Gift for me as I bid my farewell as the Crazy Mad Hatter!! . Thank you for the honor to bring smiles to these little ones and create memories for years to come. Best of all, It is not over for the next Mad Hatter…
THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU BJ’S RESTAURANT
