Kids in Distressed Situations (K.I.D.S.) will honor three women who have made meaningful impact among children and families at a fundraising luncheon on June 2. The theme for the 2009 event is “Generations of Giving Back,” focusing on the values that guide people to give back to their community, and people who serve as examples.
