A Night in Havana – 2017 Gala Benefiting the Austin Children’s Shelter
November 4, 2017 @ 5:30 PM - 11:30 PM
Please mark your calendars for Saturday, Nov. 4, 2017 as SAFE brings you A Night in Havana at Hyatt Regency located in downtown Austin. We invite you to join us for this amazing night of history, energy, and music to celebrate the children at SAFE’s Austin Children’s Shelter Campus.
For too many kids growing up in Austin, child abuse is a life sentence. Every year, there are more than 2,000 cases of child abuse reported, and over 400 children are removed from their homes as a result. This suffering and trauma affects their long-term physical and mental health — leading to a greater risk of incarceration, teen pregnancy, dropping out of high school or college, homelessness, and suicide.
SAFE is working to help kids heal and recover from trauma so they can live successful, independent lives. We cannot achieve this without your support.
