Our annual Helping Turn Lives Around Fundraising Luncheon is an invite-only event where we invite our community's own heroes to learn how to bring hope to vulnerable children and families in Miami-Dade County. We share stories of those whose lives we've touched ... and how a giving heart can change a life forever.

Through generous donations from our local heroes, we're able to continue helping children and family members who count on Children's Home Society of Florida for safety, guidance and hope.

For more information or to RSVP by March 21, 2017 please call Mary Ensor at 954-453-6411 or Mary.Ensor@chsfl.org.
