Event Description

October 15, 2014 Updated Oct 15, 2014 at 11:06 AM EDT

The Dr. Bill Lewis Center for Children is now taking lunch orders for its Chicken for Children fundraiser featuring High’s Bar-B-Q chicken meals. A limited number of chicken lunches are available, so order early to guarantee your tasty meal and show you’re support as an advocate for children.

On October 31, 2014, volunteers will package and deliver lunches including a half of a juicy High’s chicken - cooked rotisserie style – along with a baked potato, and creamy coleslaw, all served with bread and butter. Last year, lunches sold out and the Lewis Center hopes to again sell out of the 850 lunches available this year.

Chicken meals are just $9 each and 100% of the proceeds benefit the Dr. Bill Lewis Center for Children, which provides child-friendly forensic interviews for children who have experienced alleged sexual abuse. This is the fourth year the Lewis Center has held a chicken lunch fundraiser as part of their campaign to Shed Light on Child Sexual Abuse during the month of October. In 2012, the Chicken for Children event exceeded its fundraising goal, generating nearly $7,000. In 2013, the event raised more than $12,000. This year’s goal is to raise $13,000 in support of the young victims who come to the Lewis Center to break their silence.

From January 1 to September 30, 2014, the Center has provided 510 interviews to children who experienced the possible trauma of sexual abuse. For young victims of alleged sexual abuse, getting their story out is the first of many steps they will take during their healing process. The Lewis Center is there with them as they take this step. The Center listens to their story and connects them to the community resources needed to take the next step in their journey.

There are a limited number of lunches available! To ensure you get your lunch, order by October 23. Download your order form at www.lewiscenterforchildren.org. Orders can be submitted via fax to 260-421-5003 or via email to jneher@lewiscenterforchildren.org.You may pick up your order on October 31 at the west entrance of Plymouth Congregational Church (501 W. Berry Street, Fort Wayne) from 11 am to 1 pm, or your minimum order of five lunches can be delivered in the Fort Wayne area.
