Pearls & Promise
MFCC's 30th Anniversary Gala Event
MFCC has been providing needed services and supports to children and families since we first opened our doors in 1985. Thirty years of a committed relationship is traditionally known as the "pearl" anniversary, hence our name for this special event "Pearls & Promise". We invite you to join us at our special gala event to celebrate 30 years of service, and to raise much needed funds to support the continuation of these services. Your contributions to this event is the "promise" to future generations that MFCC will continue to be here to support the health and well-being of children and their families.
