Gala Sponsors Needed

Dear Potential Sponsor,

Over forty years ago, Rosemary Burke Campise had a dream to help children of Texas. Together with Charlie Campise, the Burke Center for Youth was opened as a residential treatment center on Pathfinder’s Ranch in Driftwood, Texas. Twenty years later, the Burke Center expanded to include the Child Placement and Adoption Agency with 4 locations around the state.

Burke Center for Youth currently has the capacity to serve 21 boys at Pathfinders, as well as 120 foster children at any given time. There have been some big changes around our organization including a new Transition Home for boys from 18-21. There is a new gymnasium, chapel, auto shop and covered arena. We are starting our biggest project to date with a $2M dormitory build. We can house up to 30 boys and each boy will have his own bedroom.

The Burke Center for Youth is making a one-of-a-kind, whimsical gala experience – with a new location, new partners, and a super fun theme. Our Second Mad Hatter’s Gala on April 4th 2020 will be a night to remember! Our goal is to raise $100,000 to help fully furnish this 16,000 square foot dormitory.
Burke Center for Youth would love to partner with you as we move into our new phase of helping foster children in Texas. Please review the attached sponsorship information. Other opportunities are available, so feel free to contact me with further questions, comments, or commitments regarding sponsorship at “’.

Whether through treatment, placement, or a little extra stability, the goal at Burke Center for Youth is to help children rebuild their lives in a manner that will break the cycle of abuse and give them the tools necessary to succeed in life. Work with us as we further that success – and have a great time doing it!

Respectfully Yours,
Steve Fournier
Executive Director
Burke Center for Youth
