Since 1983, the Child Abuse Prevention Center has built its foundation on innovative in-home parenting and prevention programs for families at-risk of abuse. Since their founding, they have provided services to more than 215,000 children and parents in our community. In the year 2010 alone, the Prevention Center helped over 15,000 children, 3,000 parents and 2,500 families. Additionally, volunteers last year contributed 13,500 volunteer hours, valued at a total of $253,000, dedicating their time to client-centered and special events, child abuse prevention programs, and administrative support. The Prevention Center secured donated in-kind goods worth more than $612,000 in 2010, including basic household necessities.
One of the main volunteer and fundraising events of the Orange County Child Abuse Prevention Center is their Charity Gold Classic, which is dedicated to raise funds for preventative education. The year marks the 10th Annual Charity Golf Classic where Orange County business and community leaders come together for an afternoon of golf and giving. Over the last nine years, more than 1,000 golfers have “teed off” against child abuse and helped raise almost $400,000 for our in-home child abuse prevention, parenting education and mental health programs.
Longtime co-chairs, Ed Inal of Nobel Biocare and Jeff Shepard of CRESA Partners, along with a dedicated volunteer committee, are determined to make this year’s event unforgettable. Southern California companies have generously donated auction items for the attendees to bid on and win. Some of the featured auction packages include: One week stay in a 5 or 6 bedroom house in Cabo San Lucas, an Angels VIP Luxury Suite provided by Wells Fargo, a Duffy boat ride throughout Newport Harbor, the Lexus Charity Tournament Package for Two (2) Tournament participants to compete in the 2011 Lexus Champions for Charity National Championship for a $100,000 charity purse at Pebble Beach Golf Resort, various golf paraphernalia such as drivers and wedges; and golf foursomes from golf courses located throughout Orange County and Los Angeles.
“Child abuse in Orange County is much more common than any of us would like to admit, with over 38,000 reported cases in 2010 alone,” Scott Trotter, executive director of the Child Abuse Prevention Center, said. “The Prevention Center offers 14 different programs dedicated to breaking this generational cycle of abuse.”
