With the recent developments concerning COVID19, including the recommendations from the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health in regards to cancelling mass gatherings, we have decided to postpone the 2020 Everyone's Children Luncheon.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but in the best interest of everyone's health and safety, we believe this to be the appropriate course of action.

We are committed to this event and will hold it at a later date.

We will keep you posted.

Stay safe and healthy everyone.

"Everyone's Children" Luncheon






Sponsored by

Acadia BroadcastingDairy QueenFaye and David Huestis Family Foundation Inc.Sisters of CharityJohn and Gail Rocca

Please join us at the 2020 "Everyone's Children" Luncheon in support of the New Brunswick Adoption Foundation's work in promoting and supporting the adoption of children in the care of the province.

This year will be extra special in that we will be honouring the late Erminie Cohen, our founding chairperson. To celebrate her legacy and caring contribution to so many causes and specifically to families, children and adoption, the luncheon will include the unveiling of an annual award sculpture (generously funded by NB Senators past and present) created in her name, the Erminie Cohen Compassion Award.

As in previous years we will be raising awareness of the needs of children in care to have a family they can truly call their own. As you may know, the numbers are overwhelming especially for teens who are most at risk of "aging out" of care. Of the 417 children in the permanent care of the Province, well over 50% are over the age of 11 with 35% (147) aged 15 to 18. The proceeds of the Luncheon will be used for our adoption support work with families pre and post adoption as well as our awareness work.

Support children and families in New Brunswick

It is our vision that every child or youth in the care of the province becomes a part of a permanent family. With your support and help in spreading the word, we can make this a reality.
