The Pepper Festival is very excited to announce our second charity partner for the 2018 Pepper Festival, Child Advocates of Placer County! They do some incredible work and join The Markie Foundation to our list of children’s charities The Pepper Festival will be fundraising for at this year’s festival. Their tagline is: “Empowering foster youth, at-risk youth and families in Placer County”

They are VERY enthusiastic about partnering with us (as we are to be working with them!) and making The Pepper Festival the best it can be.

“I was thrilled to learn that Child Advocates of Placer County had been chosen to partner with The Pepper Festival for their upcoming event next June!  We are grateful for opportunity to bring about awareness of the important work we do to serve the at-risk youth and foster children in our community, while enjoying live music, great food, and fun activities with our neighbors!  Endless thanks to Mr. Tracewell and The Pepper Festival team for their dedication to helping children in Placer County and passion for connecting the community.” ~ Amber Lane Calmer, Development Director

Their program goals are to:

• Find permanent homes (for foster youth this means reunification or adoption) or stable housing (for former foster youth),
• Avoid drug and/or alcohol use, teen pregnancy, and the juvenile justice system.

• Increase their educational successes, grade promotions and high school graduation rates.

• Discover new life options and employment opportunities that will help them see their own potential and develop into successful and contributing adults.

Please take some time to look over all that Child Advocates of Placer County does for the community. We think you’ll be as impressed as we were and very excited to help raise much-needed funds for their great programs.
