2018 Kids House Midnight Blue Gala
Saturday, April 7, 2018
6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.
The Venue at CFE Arena at UCF
1 in 5 children will experience abuse before the age of 18.
Join us in the fight to polish off child abuse.
The MANicure MovementSM, which started right here in Central Florida, is a grassroots campaign designed to raise awareness of child abuse as a national health crisis. Together we are working to eradicate that grim statistic. We are challenging bold men (and women) to paint their pointer fingers blue, representing the 1 in 5 children who experience abuse.
One fingernail painted blue starts…
One conversation that moves us…
One step closer to ending the tragic reality that…
One in five children will suffer abuse before the age of 18.
