15th Annual FFFK Golf Tournament

Our annual Fairways Fore Foster Kids golf tournament at the Manteca Golf Course was a success! We had a full house with 125 golfers. We were sold out a week before the event. The golfers enjoyed time before the tournament at the driving range, games, prizes, a raffle, silent auction, a BBQ hot dog snack and lunch at Chez Shari! See some of the pictures from the event below.

How Do I Use Amazon Smile?

  1. Go to smile.amazon.com
  2. On your first visit there, you will be prompted to choose a charitable organization to whom your donations from eligible purchases will go.
  3. Type “Agape Villages FFA” into the text field.
  4. That’s it! Now, every purchase you make through smile.amazon.com will result in a small portion of your purchase going to Agape!

Some Facts:

  1. Amazon doesn’t charge anything extra for this service. They pay the donation out of their profits!
  2. Once you’re signed up through smile.amazon.com, you might want to update your Amazon bookmark so it sends you to the “Smile” version. If you go to regular Amazon, you’ll get a pop-up asking if you’d prefer to use Smile, so either way, it’ll all work out for everyone.
  3. If you need more help or have any questions about this stuff, check Amazon’s own FAQ here!
  4. We really appreciate you taking this extra step to support us!

So what are you waiting for? Start using Amazon Smile today and give kids in foster care a reason to smile.

7th Annual Roseville Dinner & Silent Auction

We had a packed house for our 7th Annual Dinner, with Live and Silent Auctions, in Roseville. The theme was “Be a Hero, Save a Child” and wow did we have some heroes! Because of the kindness of all who attended and our sponsors, like Goldrush Getaways who was our event sponsor, we raised over $21,000 to help kids in foster care through the programs we offer here at Agape Villages.

The auction prizes, which included two 4-day cruises to Mexico, the music and speakers made for a fun evening as we focused on the need of the over 90 kids that currently have homes with resource families (formerly foster families) through Agape Villages.

Thank you so much for those who provided for and attended this event. We can’t do it without you!

We continue to look for resource families, volunteers and donors, so we can help even more of the ~50,000 kids in foster care in California. Please reach out if you can help.
