Since Kids in Crisis received the devastating news that their state funding was cut this winter, the Greenwich community has rallied aroudn the cause, launching a series of fundraisers from the jar on the counter at Minute Men Cleaners to t-shirt sales at the new Year’s Day plunge at Tod’s Point.

This Friday, April 1 at Greenwich Country Club, the Spring Fling: In the Spirit of the Olympics gala will benefit Kids in Crisis.

Angela Swift, Gretchen Fedeli, Jami Sherwood and Nancy Armstrong are co-chairs for the Olympics-themed event, which will raise much-needed funds for the shelter.

The event celebrates “The Spirit of the Olympics” and promises to be a casually elegant evening of exquisite food, live and silent auctions, and exciting entertainment.  No jeans, no ties please. The fun begins at 6:30pm. The event is expected to sell out early. Tickets can be purchased at www.kidsincrisis.org.

Kids in Crisis is Connecticut’s only free, round-the-clock agency providing emergency shelter, crisis counseling and community educational programs for children of all ages and families dealing with a wide range of crises – domestic violence, mental health and family problems, substance abuse, economic difficulties and more. Since its founding in 1978, Kids in Crisis has helped more than 132,000 Connecticut children and families; last year, 6,184 children and families received assistance from the organization.

Greenwich Country Club is located at 19 Doubling Rd.
