The Family Promise Board of Trustees would like to thank the Beaufort County congregations, merchants and individuals for their amazing support.

The fourth annual fundraiser event May 16, "A Night for the Children," was a wonderful success thanks to the many people who attended the event. All this was possible because of the incredible generosity of the merchants and individuals in Beaufort County who generously donated items for the auction and our sponsors: Beaufort Construction, Bishop Eye Associates, Brian and Darlene Marlowe, Bullard and Friedman, Callahan's Sports Bar & Deluxe Grill, Chris Guenther, Court Atkins Architects, Dr. Michael K. Mikkelson, Lord of Life Lutheran Church, Lowcountry Presbyterian Church, Morris Garage, Movement Mortgage, NBSC, Plantation Cafè and Deli, Realty Management Advisors, Shoreline Construction, Sunset Rotary Club-Hilton Head Island and Tara's at Moss Creek.

Your extraordinary support enables Family Promise to help homeless children and their parents with safe overnight housing and meals at congregations while searching for employment, child care and housing during the day and receiving case management to give them the tools to reach and achieve sustained independence. We thank you one and all for your kind and generous support so we can continue to help the homeless families in Beaufort County.

We believe that one homeless child is too many.

Carolyn Cherwon, president Board of trustees Family Promise of Beaufort County Bluffton
