LAFAYETTE, Ind. -– The 4th Stopping Child Abuse Summit, originally scheduled for this Wednesday, April 8th, is being postponed until Monday, May 4, 2009 out of respect for the deaths of two advocates for children in Tippecanoe County.
The theme for the summit is “Connections Count” and the steering committee determined that with the passing of Michael Dunlop, Tippecanoe County Juvenile Probation Officer, and Doug Eberle, President & CEO of the Community Foundation of Greater Lafayette, family and colleagues needed to have the opportunity to pay their respects without concern for missing this community wide conversation.
“We are deeply saddened by these losses” said Pam Biggs Reed, chair of the Our Kids are Our Community collaboration which is sponsoring the summit. “Both Michael and Doug were dedicated to creating connections for the benefit of children and youth.”
Those registered for the Summit, but unable to attend the rescheduled May 4th date may send someone in their place, donate the registration fee to support next year’s summit, or request a refund.
The 4th Annual Stopping Child Abuse Summit is designed to help build connections to better improve the lives of children and families in our community.
The new event details for the 4th Annual Stopping Child Abuse Summit are as follows:
Rescheduled Date: Monday, May 4th, 2009
Time: 8:00 am – 3:30 pm
Location: Christ United Methodist Church, CR 350 S and S. 18th Street, Lafayette, IN
