4th Annual Russian River Ride

On Friday, August 28th, 25 cyclists will begin a 100-mile ride from the front door of our family support center in the Haight-Ashbury neighborhood of San Francisco up to the Russian River. Saturday will be a day to rest, recover and enjoy a kayaking trip down the Russian River. Sunday is the return trip to San Francisco. In all, each rider will cover about 200-miles as their way to support the Prevention Center and our work.

“Thank you for choosing to support this cause. There is nothing more important than helping to protect helpless children. If there is any universal moral obligation, in my opinion, that is it. The Prevention Center team will honor your choice and put every cent we donate and raise to good use – and you can rest assured that while you may never personally meet the child whose abuse you prevented through the Prevention Center’s many effective, proven programs – you have absolutely helped change the future for many children, and our world is a better place today because of your choice.”
 – Russian River Ride Founder and former Prevention Center Board Chair, Chris Keane

18th Annual Blue Ribbon Luncheon

Thanks to the generosity of our many supporters, we raised over $640,000! This record breaking amount will support vital services for at-risk children and their families.

This year, we were thrilled to welcome actress, playwright, and social commentator Anna Deavere Smith as our keynote speaker. Her performance, in which she explored the issues of community, character, and diversity in America, moved us all deeply and reminded us of the importance of our work. We were also delighted to have former Secretary of State, Madeleine Albright, join us as a special guest.

Thank you for believing that change is possible, and that together we can give families the support they need to raise their children to be safe, healthy, and thriving. We would also like to extend a special thanks to our Champion Sponsors, BlackRock and the Polk Wealth Management Group at Morgan Stanley Private Wealth Management, for their incredible support.
