Online PR News – 05-October-2016 – Garden City, NY – EAC Networkâ€™s Pajama Party to Protect Children successfully raised over $47,000 on September 24th at the Long Island Childrenâ€™s Museum for its Children & Youth programs, which provide essential human services to local children in need.
Kids and parents alike dressed in their favorite pajamas and enjoyed free range of the museum after hours at EAC Networkâ€™s 11th annual childrenâ€™s fundraiser. Guests delighted in extra activities such as live animals, arts & crafts, and a special princess performance hosted by CM Performing Arts Center. Although attendees reveled in fun, they didnâ€™t forget the real reason they were there â€“ for the kids.
â€śItâ€™s affirming to see how much members of our community care about our children and want to see their lives improved,â€ť said Lance W. Elder, President & CEO at EAC Network. â€śWeâ€™re thrilled that so many local families came to make a real difference for the kids who need it the most.â€ť
The nonprofit has been an advocate for children since its inception in 1969 and has since created programs that reduce the trauma of physically abused children, secure homes and mentors for kids in foster care, and promote child passenger safety. Staff at the Suffolk County Child Advocacy Center in Central Islip, where several of EAC Networkâ€™s children programs are housed, take on over 400 difficult cases of child abuse each year and work in conjunction with specialized doctors and authorities to treat victims and help families navigate the prosecution process.
