Annual CHRIS Kids fundraiser tonight at Mason Murer Fine Art
Premiere Party began in 2002 as a small gathering and has now grown into a massive white-themed cocktail party and silent auction, but the mission remains the same: raising funds for LGBT and questioning youth who are served by CHRIS Kids, a child welfare nonprofit that provides services ranging from housing to counseling.
Premiere Party has raised $800,000 since its inception. This year’s event is set for June 9 at Mason Murer Fine Art, with tickets starting at $40.
“What I enjoy most is seeing all our friends and supporters coming out to help LGBT children, youth and families,” says CHRIS Kids CEO Kathy Colbenson. “It warms my heart to see people caring enough to do something, to give so that those who have been met with rejection can have acceptance and the support they need to get their lives on track.”
