Thank You for Supporting the 25th Anniversary Gala
On Nov. 16, hundreds of CARES Northwest supporters came to toast the 25th Anniversary of CARES Northwest with a festive gala at Leftbank Annex in Portland, Ore. The night included a tribute to Michael D. Schrunk, retiring Multnomah County District Attorney, who was an instrumental figure in the development of CARES Northwest. The event also helped raise awareness of our cause: more than 150 members of our community made first-time gifts in support of CARES Northwest.
Kevin Dowling, CARES Northwest program manager, helped provide context for the milestone. “Since opening our doors in 1987, we have served nearly 30,000 children in our medical clinic, and have triaged almost twice that many referrals,” Dowling said. “Before CARES was founded, if children were physically or sexually abused, they had to tell their painful story again and again and again. CARES brings together all agencies involved for one evaluation.
“The need is great and our program is committed to serving all children, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. CARES Northwest relies on generous contributions from the community to ensure our most vulnerable patients receive care.”
