The Child Advocacy Center of Niagara received more than $4,400 from the fundraiser to enhance the child-friendly atmosphere of the center with waiting room renovations and new toys.
A service of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, The Child Advocacy Center of Niagara is a countywide resource that provides a place for a multi-disciplinary team of law enforcement, social services, prosecution, and medical and mental health personnel to respond to allegations of child abuse in a child-friendly environment.
The 11th annual Kid's Tournament & Kick-a-Thon this spring raised more than $13,000 for the Child Advocacy Center, Community Missions' Onesimus House and Chuck Norris' KickStartKids.
