Imagine...

A young boy trembles with fear. Someone's daughter is so ashamed she has tears rolling down her cheek. These are horrible images, but this is what innocent children experience every time they are abducted or exploited. And this happens every day in neighborhoods like yours and mine. These children need our help. They need you.

Why you should care:

Please consider taking part in a wonderful opportunity to protect children throughout the region and right here at home by attending our annual auction event. This dinner auction will raise funds for The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children/NY Region which provides our community with critical services such as: abduction, sexual exploitation and abuse prevention education to students, teachers and parents; case assistance to law enforcement when a child has gone missing; and law enforcement training. We are only able to provide these vitally important services because of your attendance and generous donations.

This Year's Event!

This year's DISH IT OUT "Tour of the World" will be held at the Rochester Riverside Convention Center on November 8th!
