Child Saving Institute Board & Guild Raise Nearly $477,000 for Kids during Cabaret 2021

May 13, 2021

Child Saving Institute’s (CSI) Board of Directors and Guild Board hosted the agency’s largest fundraiser of the year, Cabaret 2021, May 8, at the Embassy Suites Omaha La Vista Hotel & Conference Center. The event raised nearly $477,000 to help Omaha-area children and families.

Funds raised during the evening support CSI’s quality programs, including parenting workshops, an emergency shelter for youth, therapy, older child adoption, foster care, independent living skills for youth transitioning to adulthood, pediatric social work and developmental early childhood education. Event chairs were Melanie and David Hecker; co-chairs were Adrienne and Patrick Fay. The event’s honorary chairs were Carrie and John Jenkins.

Attendees enjoyed a performance by nationally touring comedian, Pat McGann, who is quickly rising as one of the sharpest stand-ups in the comedy world. While touring with Sebastian Maniscalco, McGann found his niche connecting with crowds on everyday topics. As husband and father of three young children, McGann’s appeal stems from his quick wit and relatable take on family life and marriage.

This event was made possible by generous supporters. A special thank you to: Melanie and David Hecker, Carrie and John Jenkins, the Patterson Family, Diventures, the Heider Family Foundation, Kiewit Corporation, Henry Davis and Christina Fazzone, Wanda and Mike Gottschalk, Sue and George Haddix, Melissa and Abe Schumacher, Lindsay Corporation, the Shikhar and Kristin Saxena Family Foundation, and Valmont Industries.
