Each year on the first Saturday of February, the Salina community comes together to raise funds through an auction. With packages including services, trip, art, baked goods and parties, there’s someting for everyone! This year, the 32nd Annual CAPS Benefit Auction will be held online:
12 p.m. Fri.y, Feb. 5 — 2 p.m., Sun., Feb. 7
Wearing royal blue is a sign of support for Child Abuse Prevention. The pinwheel is the national symbol. If your business is interested in raising funds by allowing your employees to wear denim for a $5 donation, let CAPS know. We have stickers that you can wear to tell your customers that you believe all children should be safe and loved.
GREATER SALINA COMMUNITY FOUNDATION MATCH MADNESS
CAPS has an endowed fund at the GSCF to receive gifts from legacy donors. We participate in their annual Match Madness event to grow the endowment. If you are interested in leaving a lifetime legacy to CAPS through an estate gift, let us know!
EVERY CHILD MATTERS DINNER
Each October, CAPS board of directors plans a dinner to feature a nationally recognized speaker to highlight child abuse prevention. The community is invited to hear agency updates as we celebrate another year of serving children and families. Watch for a link to RSVP.
