BENEFITING THE CHILDREN'S CABINET
The Children’s Cabinet is a Nevada nonprofit organization dedicated to keeping children safe and families together. Since 1985, The Children’s Cabinet has collaborated with public partners and community leaders to identify gaps in service and to meet the needs of a wide-ranging age group—from small children to young adults.
Services include child care resources; parenting classes; education and work experience programs; outreach to runaway, homeless, and foster youth; and family counseling. With the help of donations and other community support, The Children’s Cabinet is able to provide its many programs and services at no charge.
We will be hosting a raffle with 100% proceeds going directly to Children's Cabinet. Raffle tickets will be for sale during online registration and at packet pickup.
Winners will be announced at the Children's Cabinet booth at the finish line!
