Sponsor Hero for a Day

On behalf of A Family for Every Child we would like to invite you to partner with us for our 7th annual “Hero for a Day” event, supporting foster children in search of their forever families.  Hero for a Day is an opportunity for children to be transformed in to Heroes and spend time with heroes from our community, and those from the pages of their favorite comic books.

Children who attend meet firefighters, police, and real soldiers. Professionals from around the community, including doctors, dog trainers, dentists and more, come to show the kids what they do, and offer insights for children into what they can be when they grow up. At this hands-on event kids build rockets, learn how to play lacrosse, and even sit in a fire truck! The children leave this event with their very own hero costume, and some new toys. The goal for this day is for all children to leave having learned that heroes come in all shapes, and that they too can be a hero. Hero for a Day helps further our mission by raising awareness about foster care in Oregon. We believe that this year’s Hero for a Day will be our best yet, and together we can further our goal of finding homes for every waiting child.

Calling All Princesses!

You are invited to a ROYAL event for all the magnificent children in the land. Our Princess for a Day event provides a unique experience that will last a lifetime and creates unforgettable memories for foster children and community children alike.  

During this event, our “princesses” experience a day of pampering fit for royalty. A fun-filled day of makeovers, a photo session, even a red carpet entrance into the Princess Tea Party completes this memorable journey.

The Royal Treatment

  • The princesses will each begin their journey in the Princess Salon where their personal Makeover Team will assist them with choosing their tiara followed by hair, make-up and nail services. Don't forget to ask about our Glitter Station! 
  • Next, the princesses will move to the Royal Dressing Boutique where our Princess Stylists will help them select a gown and slippers and of course, accessories!  
  • Each princess will commemorate the event with a personal photo session with one of our professional photographers and receive one photo quality print as a keepsake.
  • Finally, each princess will be announced from the red carpet as they make their regal entrance into the Royal Tea Party room where refreshments will be served and dancing will commence!  Keep an eye out... there may be Disney Princesses among us!
  • Every princess will get to take home their gown, slippers, and crown!
*Each princess chaperone is required to stay with their child(ren) the entire event.  Children may never be left unattended.
