The fund-raiser will feature a musical performance by Katie Paschelke and Toni Terwilliger, two area young singers. Tickets are on sale for $56 and can be purchased by calling 828-0022.
Each ticket purchase will provide one hour of service at the child safety center to area families, many of whom cannot afford to pay the full cost.
The nonprofit Alex and Brandon Child Safety Center is in Brainerd and serves families from Crow Wing, Cass, Wadena and Aitkin counties. The safety center provides a family-friendly place for children to visit with their separated or divorced parents who are involved in a conflict over visitation. The goal of the center is to help families be safe and nurturing, which is accomplished through supervised visits, safe exchanges and individual parent education and support.
The Alex and Brandon Child Safety Center provides visitation and exchange services that are either not available in the area or are available on a limited basis only. Since opening in September 2000, 1,922 supervised visits and 524 safe exchanges have been successfully completed.
