Roots & Wings Hosts Virtual Gala on October 21, 2021
DENVILLE, NJ - On Thursday, October 21, 2021, Roots & Wings, a Denville-based non-profit supporting young people who have aged out of foster care, will virtually host its annual Rise & Fly gala. This year’s event will be honoring Elizabeth Rieur of Skillman, a long-time supporter of the agency’s mission.
The evening will also feature inspirational stories from the young people the agency serves, exciting auction prizes and opportunities to make a significant impact on their mission. The agency invites you to experience the event virtually, either from the comfort of your own home with your immediate family or by inviting a small group of friends and family that you’re comfortable with to enjoy together.
Every year in New Jersey 600-800 young people age out of foster care. Many are not reunited with their families or placed into a permanent home, leaving them vulnerable to homelessness, poverty, unemployment, lack of education and incarceration.
The mission of Roots & Wings is to provide safe housing, emotional support, life skills, and educational opportunities for youth aging out of foster care; empowering them to rise toward their greatest potential.
Roots & Wings is funded almost entirely by individual donations, and the annual Rise & Fly gala is their largest fundraising event of the year. They rely on the generous support of donors to help continue to change the course of the lives of aged-out foster youth in New Jersey.
