BOCA RATON, FL (December 15, 2017) — KidSafe Foundation today announced that it has cancelled the appearance of NFL Super Bowl Champion Heath Evans as keynote speaker for its March 10, 2018 “Shine the Light” Gala.
KidSafe Foundation is a non-profit organization that focuses on prevention education, a key aspect to protecting children from child sexual abuse, bullying, and internet exploitation. To carry out its mission, KidSafe has created comprehensive safety programs and materials to help empower children in a variety of circumstantial situations. KidSafe believes the most effective way to make a significant difference is through the power of knowledge, and that educating children, their parents, professionals and volunteers, is crucial in making communities safer for our children.
“The primary mission of our Gala is to help prevent sexual abuse of children and raise awareness of the dangers of bullying and Internet exploitation,” said Sally Berenzweig, MEd, MA, co-founder & Executive Director KidSafe Foundation. “In light of recent allegations by a former colleague of Heath Evans, we felt it best to cancel his speaking appearance so as to not distract from our message and mission. We are currently researching alternative speakers and hope to have an announcement soon.”
