Jackson, Miss. (July 3, 2018) – Youth Villages Mississippi will host Kite Tales, an annual event that invites the community to learn how Youth Villages is helping to change the lives of Mississippi youth and families.

Kite Tales, held Friday, Aug. 3 from 6:30 to 11:30 p.m. at The Westin Jackson, will highlight individuals in the community who have made significant impacts in the lives of children in Mississippi. Youth Villages will recognize the recent achievements and outcomes in restoring and strengthening families. Attendees will hear first-hand how Youth Villages’ Intensive in-home MYPAC Program, Therapeutic Foster Care and YVLifeSet programs are transforming the lives of young people at-risk.
            “This event helps the community become more aware of Youth Villages and the programs and services we provide to help emotionally troubled children and their families across the state,” Community Relations Manager Rachel Hughes said. “Youth Villages has real solutions and proven programs to break the cycle of despair and failure, and we need the support from our community. Together, we can ensure that our most vulnerable children have the chance to live happier childhoods and grow into successful adults.”

Join Jackson’s top change-makers and young professionals for a night of food, drinks, live music, raffle, silent auction, and much more. Tickets are $50 and include Mississippi-inspired food, beer and wine, signature cocktails sponsored by Cathead Vodka and music from the 601 Live Band. Guests can bid on various items in a silent auction, and donors, who contribute more than $50, can participate in a Kendra Scott mystery jewelry pull.
