    "VOICES FOR CHILDREN" 


           Please don't forget to bring some extra cash to participate in this raffle!

    The Guardian ad Litem (GAL) program is a government-funded agency.  As such, they are not allowed to accept any donations.  We all know the work the GAL program does is very important to the children in Hillsborough County.  However, oftentimes, the funding supplied by the State to fulfill this work is not enough to appropriately supply the agency with all they need to be successful.  This is where Voices for Children comes in!


    VFC’s mission is to provide support and advocacy for the abused, neglected, and abandoned children in our community. For over 30 years, we have chosen to accomplish this mission by partnering with the Guardian ad Litem Program of Hillsborough County.

    Thank you!
