Come Join Us!
The 41st Annual PSRFA Conference is set for October 19-21, 2017 at the Holiday Inn Harrisburg-Hershey, Grantville, Pa. This year’s theme is Matching, Mentoring & More…
The conference will open with a luncheon on Thursday, October 19th. Our keynote speaker this year will be Lorine Angelo Ogurkis, Esq. and Brittany Ogurkis. Lorine is President and Co-Founder of Brandon’s Forever Home and an adoptive parent.
New this year, Adoption Matching Event on Thursday October 19th from 5:00 to 7:00 pm. Our hope is to match foster children waiting for their forever home with a forever family to call their own.
The conference registration fee includes 12 hours of training, refreshments at breaks, six meals, and networking with other resource families throughout Pennsylvania.
Sixteen separate workshops are scheduled for Thursday afternoon through Saturday morning. There will be some informative new classes this year and, per your request, some old favorites are back.
Thursday night’s dinner will be an opportunity for all to sit back and relax. This year’s theme is Magic of Music! After dinner, join us for the Annual Benefit Auction for the PSRFA Scholarship Fund.
Friday evening at our Annual Awards Banquet, we will honor the individuals who have done so much to help improve the lives of our families and children. Dinner music provided by the Strolling Strings.
Immediately following our Saturday morning “Buffet Breakfast,” we will hold the Annual Scholarship Raffle and membership meeting. Proceeds from the raffle and auction are the major sources of funds that PSRFA uses to provide scholarships to graduating seniors who are foster, adoptive, or biological children of foster parents. Last year because of all of you, we were able to award four $2000.00 scholarships. We hope to be able to do the same this year. We are always looking for auction items, so please feel free to bring some goodies with you when you come to the conference.
We know that you will enjoy the conference and we are looking forward to seeing all of you there.
Kathleen Ramper, Executive Director
