Host a Mixer

You can make a huge impact in the comfort of your own home by hosting a Mixer. Invite friends, family and colleagues to attend an illuminating presentation about For Kids’ Sake and how they can get involved. These fundraisers typically fund an urgent project. Mingle, enjoy hors d’oeuvres and make this fundraiser a party! This is a simple event to host, yet it touches everyone who attends. If you're interested in being a host, please email us at info@forkidssake.net or call 618-529-5044.
