Competitor for Miss New York USA Pageant to Host Event to Benefit Child Abuse Prevention Program
Maria Concha Presents Cocktail Party to Raise Awareness of Child Abuse
Maria Concha is announcing that she is hosting a cocktail party to benefit the Child Abuse Prevention Program (CAPP) on Monday, December 3 at the Brandy Library, located at 25 N. Moore Street in New York. This event will take place from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Admission at the door is $20, which includes wine, beer, food and a “Luxury Lotto” for guests in attendance.
The purpose of the event is to raise awareness about child abuse and how people can learn to break the cycle that destroys children’s lives. In 2010, according to the National Statistics on Child Abuse, derived from the National Children’s Alliance, approximately 266,000 abused and neglected children received help from children’s advocacy centers around The United States. In 2011, that number reached more than 279,000 children.
“I am honored and quite pleased to have Maria Concha represent CAPP at this event,” stated Marion White, Executive Director, CAPP. “Ms. Concha’s fundraiser will further educate and inform individuals about the mistreatment of children. Efforts like hers will help advance the cause and potentially lead us to a world free of child abuse.”
Ms. Concha is also a contestant representing Queens in the Miss New York USA Pageant. For more information about the event and how to donate, please email mariaconcha1215@
