2017 Charity Auction
Every year, JemCon partners with a local charity and offers our support through an auction held at our convention. We are excited to announce this year's chosen organization is TREEHOUSE!
Each morning, nearly 9,000 foster care children in Washington State wake up to unfamiliar surroundings. In foster care, they are safe from physical harm and dangerous neglect, but they are far from out of the woods socially, emotionally and academically. Trauma and loss, changes in homes and schools, and emotional upheaval cause them to perform worse than their peers on every academic measure. TREEHOUSE strives to create a world where every child that has experienced foster care has the opportunities and support they need to pursue their dreams.
TREEHOUSE is dedicated to closing the achievement gap between youth in foster care and their peers forever by providing students with academic and other essential support that all kids need to succeed.
100% of the funds raised from the JemCon 2017 Charity Auction will be donated to Treehouse.
The charity auction will be held during JemCon 2017 which will be taking place October 6-8, 2017 in Seattle, Washington. If you would like to donate an item to be auctioned off in support of this cause please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
