CCAI 2nd Annual Orphan Care Gala – The Happiest World Adoption Day!

Happy National Adoption Awareness Month!

SERVING ORPHANS, SAVING LIVES, GIVING HOPE AND SHARING LOVE. This is the mission of CCAI and the theme for CCAI’s Orphan Care Gala. 

About 300 CCAI families, supporters, and guests packed the Summit Event Center in Aurora, CO this past Sunday night to help raise the much-needed funds to sponsor orphans in China, and support the seven Lily Orphan Care Centers that CCAI runs in China, along with our Haiti, Latvia, Ukraine, and Bulgaria efforts. All donations go directly towards hiring qualified caretakers, renovating facilities, purchasing rehab equipment and services, and providing high quality formula and medicine.

Our thanks go Sarah Ritz, the gala Co-Chair who spear-headed the massive effort together with Billy Wynn and Lori Bachman, as well as a dedicated volunteer army. We also want to express our gratitude to all families around the country for participating in the silent auction event through online bidding! Did you win what you wanted?? 😀

Our 2nd CCAI Orphan Care Gala was SO MUCH FUN and absolutely heart-warming to the nth degree!!! Thank you all of our families and friends who joined us both online and in person. We are still counting up the total amount raised for our life-changing initiatives, but all signs point to a very successful night! 

We are endlessly grateful for all of the support shown, not only this weekend, but always. Your passion is life-changing in the most tangible way and we cannot thank you enough. ♥

Please visit our Facebook page to look through all of our photos! They are fantastic.
