A VIP reception for the Sixth Annual ChildNet Care for Kids Luncheon, was hosted by Sklar Furnishings in Boca Raton, on February 27th, Wednesday, 5:30p.m.-7:30p.m.

The evening was spent bringing awareness to a cause that so many of us don’t realize exists in our Community. Every year, thousands of abused, abandoned, and neglected children enter foster care in both Broward, and Palm Beach. As a community, we have a duty to provide these vulnerable children with the safety, stability, and love they so desperately need and deserve. Guests enjoyed a glass of bubbly, an assortment of hors d’oeuvres, while live music added to the festivities.
