DCCH Announces Fundraising Auction to Help Victims of Child Abuse
Fort Mitchell, KY, April 15, 2021– DCCH Center for Children and Families is excited to announce its “Swing Into Spring” Virtual Auction and Event to raise funds for survivors of child abuse.
DCCH is a nonprofit in Fort Mitchell that serves children and families in crisis. Their Residential Treatment program provides critical, trauma-informed care for survivors of child abuse and neglect. Children arrive at DCCH broken, afraid, and in need of healing and comfort. They find compassionate care and intensive behavioral therapy that helps guide them to a brighter future.
DCCH’s Residential Treatment program is partially funded by the State of Kentucky. Every year, the amount received falls short of the actual costs associated with providing the life-changing services these children need by over $1.5 million dollars. “Swing Into Spring” is DCCH’s largest philanthropic effort. It figures prominently in the funding of its Residential Treatment Program.
In 2020, DCCH moved “Swing Into Spring” online due to COVID restrictions. Like last year, DCCH is again hosting this event virtually. This year, “Swing Into Swing” will occur from April 20-25, culminating in a program on April 25 at 7 pm. This week-long event will offer supporters an on-line auction to bid on unique and exciting items, including premium bourbons, fine jewelry, and one-of-a-kind experiences. DCCH is proud to announce St. Elizabeth Healthcare as the Presenting Sponsor
of this year’s “Swing Into Spring.”
"Last year’s virtual Swing Into Spring event was a great success," Said Event Chair Bob Hoffer. "We’re excited to bring back this premier event to everyone in Northern Kentucky. There’s something for everyone, and every donation to Swing Into Spring will change the lives of children living at DCCH."
Everyone in the community is invited to join in the fun. Register today at www.DCCH21.givesmart.com. Registration is free and allows everyone to bid all week. Community members can also support DCCH and “Swing Into Spring” by purchasing a “Care for Kids Raffle” tickets, which are $20 each for a chance to win up to $10,000. Purchase tickets at https://www.dcchcenter.org/raffle.
“DCCH relies on this crucial revenue to continue the healing work we do at DCCH," said Executive Director Bob Wilson. "The need for this support is greater now than ever due to the continuing financial impact COVID has had on DCCH and the children in our care.”
