(Joplin, MO) – FosterAdopt Connect, the leading organization dedicated to serving children in foster and adoptive care in Missouri, is hosting their Midsummer Sip & Swing Fundraiser at Just A Taste in Webb City, Missouri, on Thursday, July 22 from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm.
Proceeds from the event will go to support FosterAdopt Connect’s programs in the Joplin region. Their work includes preventative services that help families who are struggling to maintain custody of their children while getting the help they need, foster care and adoption services, and programs that help youth aging out of the foster care system make the transition to adulthood with the tools and resources they need to thrive.
The event will transport attendees back to 1923, where they will learn the Lindy Hop along with some other swingin’ dance moves. Party-goers will enjoy grazing tables with signature cocktails all evening long. There will also be fun games, excellent prizes, and even a classic dessert auction.
General admission tickets are $50, and the $70 VIP ticket includes a luxurious wine tasting. JOMO Jazz will be burning up the dance floor until the end of the night. It will truly be an experience you won’t want to miss!
