Meet Our 2024 Bloom Co-Chairs

Bloom is CAC's signature fundraising event held in the spring. It's a night of incredible stories and great conversation, as supporters raise money for CAC's work in the community empowering young abuse survivors' voices and inspiring hope. This year two dedicated individuals are co-chairing Bloom, which takes place on Thursday, April 18, from 6-9PM.

When asked to describe the CAC in 5 words he said, "Essential; Rescuers; Sanctuary; Protector; Advocates; Unknown- The CAC is an essential service for a very difficult issue that is not front and center in society. The CAC does so much for the most vulnerable in our society." Jeff is a passionate advocate for helping the CAC continue to provide not only immediate support but ongoing and long-term support to clients.
