Thank you to everyone who was able to join us to celebrate the 2018 KidSafe Awardees. It was a wonderful afternoon and we could not have done it without the many generous sponsors and hard working Awards Committee volunteers who give so generously of their time and energy in support of the children and families in our community through the work of KidSafe.

Thank you again to the friends, family and fellow professionals who were all present to acknowledge the work and dedication of the 2018 Awardees.
