Portland, May 19th. This was a special year for the Black & White Ball as 2012 marked the 20th and final year of the event. For the last two decades, the Boys and Girls Aid Ball has brought together Portland’s community and business leaders from diverse backgrounds. Katherine Hart, Trevor Hart, Marina Nachand, Gabe Nachand, Anne Cleve and Mark Cleve celebrated at the gala.
This year’s Ball was be held at the Nines in Downtown Portland. The elegant evening featured fine dining, dancing and a live auction that raised funds to impact the lives of children in need.
From Boys & Girls Aid:
At Boys & Girls Aid, we believe that all children deserve loving, caring adults in their lives and a safe place to sleep at night. To see this happen, we offer a variety of programs.
- We find permanent homes for children through adoption.
- We provide temporary safe places to stay through shelters and foster homes.
- And we teach skills for life to at-risk youth.
In each of our programs, we believe that children play an integral role in planning their own futures. Staff employ a positive youth development philosophy and work with each client to see that their particular needs are met.
