National Child Abuse Prevention Month

.....(also known as Blue Ribbon Campaign) in the U.S., to raise awareness & prevent child abuse.  The Blue Ribbon Campaign to Prevent Child Abuse began as a Virginia grandmothers tribute to her grandson who died as a result of abuse. As part of this campaign, our local council, Prevent Child Abuse-Sonoma County, hosts a series of awareness events throughout the month to recognize the importance of child abuse prevention.  Across the nation, a report of child abuse is made every 10 seconds.  In California, a report is made every minute.  Please join us for some activities in April in honor of this important month!  Whether you are able to attend one of our events or join us in spirit-please help us end child abuse & strengthen the health of Children, Parents & Families in Sonoma County.

Hunt for The Hare - Safari West

10:30am AND 2pm  - Join the animals of Safari West (and their human companions).
"This Egg-straordinary Celebration & Brunch is a wonderful way to bring the family together for a little outdoor fun & adventure.

A fun-filled adventure that will have everyone trying to find Mr. Hare, who has disappeared from Safari Wests Savannah Cafe.  He has taken off in pursuit of his old rival Mr. Tortoise, leaving poor Mrs. Hare to prepare the Easter brunch alone!

Parents have a good excuse to act like kids again as kids & adults board our new open-air buses to search for Mr. Hare.  He is 6 feet tall so you can probably leave the binoculars at home.  That said, theres always the risk you might get a little distracted by all the antelope, giraffes & rhinos along the way!

Though Mr. Hare does this every year, he always turns up in time to hop over & join everyone for Easter Brunch.  Every child wins at this game as Mr. Hare is reunited with his honey-bunny, Mrs. Hare!
