Wright for Kids 
Presents 
Arcadia Rock Fest

August 16-17, 2013
Arcadia Creek Festival Place


Bill Wright was committed to
making Kalamazoo County a great place to raise a family!

One of Bill Wright's favorite events was his Arcadia Rock Fest.  As his event, he used the festival as a means to raise money for his Wright for Kids Charity - a 501-c-3 organization. 

To see how "cool" the Arcadia Rock Fest was and will continue to be, check out the 2013 Arcadia Rock Fest program brochure, click here.

Arcadia Rock Fest truly reflects that this is one event that celebrates rock-n-roll but also supports kids.  It's all family-friendly and kids should celebrate the legends of our Rock eras, but the adults who come bring with them "lots" of money that supports Wright for Kids and all the cool things they do ALL year.  Check out our Wright for Kids tab for a preview of some of the major organizations supported as a result of the money raised at this festival. 

The entertainment is all about tribute bands.  And, there is an opportunity to really donate money to Wright for Kids through the VIP tent where corporations purchase tables for the night.  Q-It Up and Carrabba's Italian Grill were the food sponsors for 2013.  It's all-in-all a great night of celebration and raising money for Wright for Kids.  


 

 

Purpose:
Wright for Kids Arcadia Rock Fest has now donated $182,000 to The Community Healing Centers as a result of the money raised at this festival.  This money is matched by a federal grant program that provides the ability to insure that the funds are made available to children who have been abused and neglected right here in  Southwest Michigan (doubling the amount raised). Arcadia Rock Fest is scheduled for 2014.  Afterall, we love kids - it's our future.

Charity:

The Community Healing Center
Supports children who have been abused and neglected

The Children's Advocacy Center is a caring, child-friendly, safe place for children who have been sexually abused to go for help. If a child has been sexually abused, or an adult suspects that a child has been sexually abused, he or she is referred to the Children's Advocacy Center at the Community Healing Centers by Protective Services workers, the police, or concerned adults in the child's life.

The Children's Advocacy Center is a community-based program that offers a continuum of care from the child's initial disclosure of sexual abuse through the community investigation and prosecution, to the child's eventual recovery. The goals of the Children's Advocacy Center are to protect children who have been sexually abused and prevent further abuse; to preserve and improve the child victim's mental health through supportive and responsive services during the time of disclosure and thereafter; to maintain and reconstitute a healthy family by healing the scars of sexual abuse and helping the child and family redirect their efforts toward positive growth and development; to enhance community safety by preventing the perpetration of sexual abuse; and to provide a continuum of care and service to sexually abused children and their non-offending family members.
