During the event, they presented over $250,000 to charities and student’s in the form of scholarships.
RAACE is extremely grateful for the efforts of the AIAC and its members in making this another great year in The Race Against Abuse of Children Everywhere! After the dinner, RAACE Founder Kenneth Smith and Executive Director Bradley Brickel addressed the crowd and thanked everyone for their generosity and urged them to continue the fight against child sexual abuse. Everyone at RAACE would like to thank the AIAC and its members for supporting our goals and mission in 2014 as we look forward to 2015 and beyond.
