BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Source: Association of Caregiving Youth) — Trying to grab essential financial and community support ‘by-the-horns” is the mission of the American Association of Caregiving Youth (www.AACY.org ). Appropriately, a western theme has been selected for this year’s fun filled fundraising gala in support of the one-of-a-kind local charity.
The Saddle Up For Caregiving gala will be held at the Via Mizner Golf & City Club on Saturday, November 11th . The entertaining and surprise-filled reception where guests are invited to wear their Western clothing, begins at 6:30.
Caregiving youth, children who fill adult-sized shoes as they academically and personally sacrifice to provide care for ill, injured, elderly or disabled family members, are the ultimate beneficiaries of this event.
Debralyn and Ronnie Belletieri are event Chairs. The Belletieri’s are business and bowling magnets of Strikes of Boca, the Boca Raton’s popular and only bowling facility.
The American Association of Caregiving Youth (AACY) has served over 1,300 middle and high school students and their families. AACY has raised national awareness about the otherwise hidden, unserved and growing population of children who serve as family caregivers. With support in school, out of school and at home from sixth through twelfth grades, children learn they are no longer alone, remain in school and graduate, often entering careers in healthcare.
