PARSIPPANY — Frank Cahill, representing Kafe Mozart, presented Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany with a check with a donation from the “Dine for Dollars” program held at the restaurant. The check was a fundraiser for “National Child Abuse Prevention Program.”
Kafe Mozart offers the opportunity to non-profit groups to hold fundraisers every Monday to receive a percentage of the days proceeds.
Karen DeChristopher, chairman of Young Children Priority One, said “It was a great opportunity to help raise funds for ‘National Child Abuse Prevention Program.’ ”
The Kiwanis Club of Greater Parsippany participated in the annual Pinwheels For Prevention event. Karen DeChristopher and the committee, Young Children Priority One, has placed signs and pinwheels throughout Parsippany. These pinwheels represent abused children of Parsippany-Troy Hills.
Why Pinwheels for Prevention? For decades, market research consistently has shown that the public views child abuse and neglect as a serious problem. As a national organization whose mission is “to prevent the abuse and neglect of our nation’s children,” Kiwanis’ emphasis is to transform that awareness into action. We now have that opportunity through the pinwheel, which reminds us of childlike notions and stands for the chance at the healthy, happy and full lives all children deserve.
Kiwanis views this as part of their mission statement “changing the world one child and one community at a time” When you drive throughout Parsippany and see these pinwheels, take time to reflect on all the abused children in the world.
Kafe Mozart is located at 2900 Route 10 West, Powder Mill Plaza West, Parsippany.
