The Center for Prevention of Child Abuse presents

‘There’s No Excuse for Child Abuse’ Annual Gala

Event is April 20, 2017 and will be honoring Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro

The Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse is pleased to announce its annual “There’s No Excuse for Child Abuse” gala and silent auction on Thursday, April 20, at 5:30 p.m., at the Grandview in Poughkeepsie. The Center is proud this year to honor Dutchess County Executive Marcus Molinaro.

Dutchess County Government has been a consistent supporter of the CPCA’s mission in preventing child abuse and has committed more than $400,000 of assistance to date. This year the County budget not only includes two new prosecutors to combat child abuse and human trafficking, but also grants $14,000 for the Center’s Personal Safety Program and $25,000 to expand its Teen Parenting Program.

“Every year the CPCA serves thousands of children and families in Dutchess County, and Marcus Molinaro has been a tireless advocate,” said Mary Fleming, interim Executive Director for The Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse.

As the CPCA looks forward to the future, it relies on community members to support the cause and help end the epidemic of child sexual abuse. Everyone is welcome to join the Center at its gala with the theme ‘There’s No Excuse for Child Abuse’, and help keep our children safe.
