We invite you to join Honorary Chairs David & Nancy Lau and Jonathan & Meloney Lau for Judson Center’s spectacular, annual fundraising galaA Night to Embrace Our Children and Families presented by Chevrolet.

On Saturday, November 8, 2014, Judson Center supporters and friends will come together at Birmingham’s Townsend Hotel to celebrate 90 years of building brighter futures for children and families at a spectacular Roaring 20’s themed evening. In 1924, the Charleston was hot, Chevrolet was the best-selling car in the U.S., and Judson Center began changing lives. Join us in celebration for an evening of cuisine, cocktails, 20’s inspired entertainment, and a chance to bid on unique items in the live and silent auctions.

A Night to Embrace is more than just a great party – it raises critical funds to support Judson Center’s vital mission of building brighter futures for more than 6,500 children and their families in our community – children challenged with autism, children with special needs, and children that have been abused or neglected.

We invite you to invest in the children in our community by joining us at A Night to Embrace. You and your guests will enjoy a truly memorable evening, and most important of all, be a part of changing a child’s and family’s life in the most positive way possible.

We're a powerful force for good. With faith and courage, we can perform great deeds and take freedom's next step. And we will. We will carry on the tradition of a good and worthy people who have brought light where there was darkness, warmth where there was cold, medicine where there was disease, food where there was hunger, and peace where there was only bloodshed.

Let us be sure that those who come after will say of us in our time, that in our time we did everything that could be done. We finished the race; we kept them free; we kept the faith.
