7th Annual Gala and Auction Event

Children First Foundation Annual Gala & Auction
Lerner and Rowe Gives Back sponsor the 7th Annual Children First Foundation Gala and Auction.

Lerner and Rowe Gives Back is pleased to once again sponsor Children First Foundation’s annual gala and auction. Proceeds raised will be used to assist the Foundation’s efforts to raise over $100,000 to improve transportation for the children at Children’s First Leadership Academy (CFLA).

The Children First Foundation’s primary focus is helping bridge the gap in funding for the CFLA.  Children who attend CFLA live at or below the poverty line and may or may not be homeless. However, thanks to the support of the Children First Foundation and Foundation supporters, the children who attend CFLA receive the same educational opportunities as other children.
