Butterfly Ball 2013

“Each May, Boost hosts the Butterfly Ball®, our major fundraising event. It not only supports Boost’s programs and services but also raises awareness about the enormous problem of child abuse.

The evening will feature good food, wonderful entertainment and an exciting live auction but at the heart of it is a desire to support our most vulnerable children. 

Here are some key statistics:

      It is estimated that 2-6 children in every Canadian school classroom have witnessed some form of abuse in the home over the past year.

      Canadian police estimate that there are more than 100,000 websites containing thousands of child abuse images.

      93% of alleged perpetrators are known to their child victims.

Boost’s invaluable work to help neglected and abused children include:

      Providing assessments for more than 500 children a year. The children receive counselling as well as preparation for court.

      Providing Primary Prevention programs to more 3,000 school-aged children annually. The program teaches them the skills to make them less vulnerable to abuse.

      Providing comprehensive training programs to promote early identification and effective intervention in order to reduce the incidence of child abuse and family violence.

With your support of this event, Boost will not only continue to provide critical service to the children and families but can increase our services so that no child has to wait for help.

Please join us on May 30, 2013 for an important and worthwhile cause.

With warm regards,
Daniela DeGasperis, Vanessa Mulroney and Jennen Phelan
