Former NFL Pro Tim Carter, Founder of Carter's Kids, hosts First Annual Charity Benefit Fundraiser.
Organization to announce Tim Carter’s Enrichment Program for Foster Youth.
The First Annual "Carter’s Kids Charity Benefit" hosted by former NFL pro athlete Tim Carter, will welcome VIPs, athletes, celebrities and influencers to the Mosaic Bar & Lounge on Saturday, June 22nd, 2013, from 5:00pm - 9:00pm.
The fundraiser will raise monies for the construction of a new multi-purpose enrichment facility for foster youth, designed to support the Carter’s Kids Residential Treatment Center, by providing an enrichment program to include sports involvement, social skill development and character building.
Founded by retired professional NFL athlete Tim Carter, and his wife, LaShell, Carter’s Kids was created as an extension of their love and compassion for children. The Carters have always dedicated themselves to serving the community and helping those who are less fortunate. Together, the Carters work to plant seeds in the lives of at-risk boys and girls to expose them to a positive life.
"We plan on helping our boys and girls get back on track while at the homes we provide for them, and seeing to it that they stay on track long after they leave our care,” LaShell said.
Tim’s mission spreads far beyond the children currently residing in the Carter’s Kids foster homes. Tim is well aware of the life skills one acquires by participating in organized sports. He believes these skills play a crucial role in becoming productive members of society after the children leave the care of Carter’s Kids.
The First Annual "Carter’s Kids Charity Benefit" will be hosted at the Mosaic Bar and Lounge (5927 Almeda Road), Saturday, June 22nd, 2013, from 5:00pm – 9:00pm. VIP guests will be welcomed on the red carpet at 5:00pm, followed by guests and patrons at 6:00pm.
