30th Anniversary Gala A Success

August 9, 2010

The Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County celebrated it’s 30th Anniversary at the American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore this June.  Long time supporters of the Family Crisis Center, as well as new donors made their way to the museum to celebrate more than 30 years of assisting Baltimore families who are dealing with domestic violence and family conflict.

For pictures from the event, click here.

The gala’s major sponsors were the People for Rebecca Dongarra for County Council, The Sun Products Corporation, and the Long Green Valley Church of the Brethren.

Executive and Clinical Director, Doug Murphy, thanked the crowd for supporting the Family Crisis Center and presented awards of appreciation to three long term Family Crisis Center supporters: Long Green Valley Church of the Brethren, The Hunt Manor Women’s Club, and the Family Crisis Center’s first Director, Monroe Good.

Guests enjoyed a dinner provided by Dionysus’ Kitchen, music courtesy of Absolute Entertainment, and a silent auction filled with vacation get aways, airfare, wine tastings, and more.

The Family Crisis Center thanks everyone for coming out, and we look forward to next year’s celebration.

Concert Will Collect Toys For Children At Shelter

December 1, 2009

As the holidays approach, we are reminded of the children staying at the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County’s Emergency Safe Shelter. The children have been forced to leave their homes to avoid family conflict and domestic violence, and many of the children don’t have hope that their Christmas will be filled with much joy. The mother’s often don’t have anything, and struggle with the idea of having nothing for their children for Christmas.

Fortunately, some local musicians have come together to help the children staying at the Family Crisis Center.

On Saturday, December 19th, there will be an event held to benefit the Family Crisis Center of Baltimore County. The voice of Baltimore Football, Paul Clary, will emcee the event that will take place at Lantern Gardens in Rosedale from 8:30 PM to 1:00 AM.

There will be three bands playing the show: The Black Marks, Susan Souza, and The Charm City Sinners. Comedian Eric Frost will also be performing.

Tickets are $28 and a toy donation, which includes beer and wine! So come on by on the 19th, bring a toy, have a good time, and bring joy to one of the children at the Family Crisis Center.
