Mad About Plaid

Our Village Closet is preparing for its inaugural fundraiser in late summer, and we need our village to help!

OVC’s Mad About Plaid will be a fun and informative evening designed to shed light on how we can all help strengthen the foster care community and the sobering reality of this social issue. Plan to join us for an evening of entertainment, food, drinks, and an auction.  We will also have an online auction for anyone near and far to participate.   

Our fundraising efforts focus on continuing recently created programs that ensure youth affected by foster care can receive FREE supplies and support, as well as their caregivers.  

Join us for our inaugural fundraising event in late August/early September!

Every day in Sonoma County, between 50-75 children have open cases in the dependency system and hundreds of families are impacted by trauma associated with abuse and neglect. Mad About Plaid will be a fun and informative evening designed to shed light on this significant social issue. The increased challenges due to COVID-19 have stretched our resources to the limit, and we need our fundraising dollars to DO MORE so we can BE MORE for these youth affected by foster care and the caregivers who nurture them.

OVC’s fundraising efforts focus on continuing programs that ensure:

  • Sonoma County children affected by foster care receive needed clothing and shoes, toys and books, sports equipment, school and safety supplies 
  • Sonoma County foster caregivers have training, support, and connection to resources that help navigate the complex dependency system
  • All Sonoma County youth and caregivers affected by foster care feel seen and heard
  • That Sonoma County becomes more trauma-informed and aware of ways to support the foster community
