Editor,

On behalf of the board of directors, staff and most importantly, the children we serve, The Cricket Center would like to publicly thank the following supporters.

Bike Week – Kathy Michael, Chase Micheal and Lisa Layfield (Ocean City Chamber of Commerce)

Wine on the Beach – Christina Stokes extended her support again this year

Bliss Salon Cut-a-Thon – Gina Shaffer and Cassandra Pike generously donated their time, talent and salon to help us

As a result of their generosity, $28,500 was raised and donated to The Cricket Center.

The CRICKET (Child Resource Intervention Center Kids Empowerment Team) Center is a child-friendly, safe and neutral location in which local law enforcement and Child Protective Services investigators may conduct and observe forensic interviews with children who are alleged victims of crimes.

The Cricket Center provides child and non-offending family members support, crisis intervention, trauma-based therapy and medical intervention.

The Cricket Center is Worcester County’s only Child Advocacy Center (CAC) and fully accredited by the National Children’s Alliance.

Without the support of our local community it would be incredibly difficult to fulfill our mission to create a community response in which abusers are held accountable and children and families experience hope and healing.

Thank you to all who came out to support us and we look forward to your attendance at our fourth annual evening at The Hobbit on Oct. 27.

Wendy Myers

Executive Director
