The Polinsky Children's Center Auxiliary is grateful and honored to be the 2014 Honoree of the Gold Digger's Hat's Off Luncheon, "There's No Place Like Home". Yes, there's no place like home. The $5,000 gift will be used to enhance the lives of our Foster Youth in their temporary home at the Polinsky Children's Center. We will now be able to add murals to our Intake and Interview rooms, the first areas the youth experience at PCC, as well as three murals in our Medical Unit. Thanks to the generosity of the Gold Diggers, our Polinsky Kids will see that people in the community do care about them and are making a positive impact on their lives. Our Polinsky Children's Center Auxiliary is most thankful.
