Share Your Heart For Adoption

The Share Your Heart Benefit Concert is approaching. Adoptions From The Heart will host our 3rd Benefit Concert this November 7th from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM at the Manayunk Brewing Company. 

The four-hour event will be AFTH’s kick-off to National Adoption Month. Tickets are $25 and will offer live music, free food, one free drink, a photo wall, a happy hour drink prizes, and more. This year’s event will feature performances from Whiskey Logic, Bethlehem & Sad Patrick, and Miss Elaine.

We are very excited to have Cam Media Team be the Headliner sponsor at the Benefit Concert. The company is #1 in Live video & video marketing. We are so excited to be partnering with the cam media team for this event!

The event raises funds for the Birth Parent Scholarship Fund. This fund helps Birth Parents all around the United States finish their degree. The fund has supported 19 men and women to return to school after placing their child for adoption since 2014.

“The AFTH scholarship was something I was excited to apply for because I knew it meant there was an organization that was actively helping birth mothers’ to achieve their goals post-placement. One of my greatest goals in life has been to get a college degree, and the AFTH Birth Parent Scholarship has been an amazing boost to keep me going in my goal of finishing school.”

If you would like to be part of the Share Your Heart Benefit Concert, you can purchase your tickets HERE! We hope to have you all there supporting us. If you want to share the event with your friends, check out our Facebook Event!
