Mile-Lincoln Gala

Please Join Us to Make a Difference at
Miles-Lincoln Award Gala & Auction

Children’s Friend is active in the heart of Worcester, working to improve the lives of the city’s children and families.

Your support of the Miles-Lincoln Gala is critical to meet the ever increasing need for services: The need for permanent homes for children in the care of DCF; the need for access to mental health counseling for children; the need for more openings in high-quality child care to meet the demand of desperate families receiving subsidy vouchers; and the need for grief support for families, especially as the opioid crisis grows.

Your sponsorship of the Miles-Lincoln Gala to benefit Children’s Friend will expand our ability to serve more families and children in our community through five areas of service: outpatient child and family mental health, in-home mental health therapy and support services, adoption services, grief support, and early education and child care.

Join Us to Thank the Lori Lajoie Committee

The Lori Lajoie Committee is comprised of Worcester Country Club members who work tirelessly to ensure the success of the Club’s annual Lori Lajoie Charity Golf Tournament.

At the 43rd Annual Lori Lajoie Charity Golf Tournament on August 16, the Committee raised and exceeded the bar in fundraising including the Fund-a-Need for Children’s Friend. This support was a major factor in supporting the new Ray and Coco Lajoie Center for Children’s Friend.
