OSWEGO, NY – Hundreds of community members filled the Lake Ontario Event and Conference Center to enjoy some hot wings and cold micro-brews at the Child Advocacy Center of Oswego County’s second annual Chicken Wing and Micro-Brew Fest.
The event raised more than $10,000 to help support the agency’s efforts to combat and prevent child abuse in Oswego County.
“Our second annual Chicken Wing and Micro-Fest was a tremendous success! Thanks to our many supporters and the nearly 400 community members who attended the event, we raised some much needed funds that will allow us to continue to provide services free of charge to victims of child abuse in Oswego County,” said Karrie Damm, executive director.
A non-profit organization, the CAC works hand-in-hand with local law enforcement, prosecution, child protective services, medical providers, therapy providers, and victim advocacy professionals in Oswego County to protect and serve children that are victims of sexual and physical abuse.
In 2012 the CAC served more than 300 children and families in Oswego County.
