For 21 years, with the patronage over 10,000 attendees, restaurants, and celebrity guests, Blind Date With a Star has raised well over $1,000,000 dollars, helping to fund the vital needs of children in our community. This year is no different with 100% of the 2024 Blind Date With a Star proceeds supporting the important Youth and Child Caring program that Chisholm Services for Children provides for children ages 12 and younger.
Chisholm has three main programs:
#1: The residential program for children under the age of 12 who face severe circumstances like neglect and abuse, to a realization of self-worth.
#2: A community-based literacy program for children from primary to grade six who are reading below grade level or who have been diagnosed with a learning difference.
#3: Chisholm also provides a monthly group session for parents who have been approved to adopt by the Department of Community Services and waiting to welcome a child into their home.
Chisholm gives children a safe home and helps them develop skills and capacities to function successfully in a community and grow as healthy, stable individuals 😊
