Swanky Soirée has expanded into one of the most anticipated fundraising evenings of the year. Enticing sponsors and supporters, both past and recent, from throughout the Bay area and beyond, this year promises to be an all-new Swanky Soirée. Fresh. Fun. Rewarding.
Founded in 1927, Brookwood Florida provides a unique, life-changing residential program for non-pregnant, non-addicted, at-risk girls between the ages of 13 and 20. The agency typically serves between 100 and 110 girls per year who have suffered abuse, neglect, homelessness and serious family dysfunction. Along with a safe and nurturing environment, Brookwood provides a four-part program that includes education, job skills training, independent living preparation, and mental health counseling. The agency also offers three residential tiers with increasingly more independent living conditions to help our clients move steadily toward self-sufficiency and reintegration within the community.
BROOKWOOD ESTIMATES THE COST OF ONE GIRL FOR ONE DAY TO BE $150. NO GIRL IS EVER TURNED AWAY, YET WE DO NOT RECEIVE ENOUGH COMBINED FUNDS FROM THE STATE AND FAMILIES TO FULLY COVER EACH GIRL’S EXPENSES. SWANKY SOIREE HELPS US OFFSET THE COSTS AND KEEP OUR THERAPEUTIC PROGRAM BOTH IN OPERATION AND SUCCESSFUL. WHEN YOU ATTEND SWANKY SOIREE, YOU SUPPORT YOUNG GIRLS STRIVING TOWARD SELF-SUFFICIENCY.
