We want to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who attended the 2023 Go Blue for Kids Gala presented by FlexPAC – it was a huge success and an incredibly fun evening! Together, we raised over $98,000 to support our mission to advocate, educate and protect on behalf of some of the most vulnerable children in Indiana. We are honored to have so many passionate supporters from the community committed to serving local youth.
Sade Burrell is a Master of Social Work graduate from the University of Southern California, and an undergraduate of San Diego State University.

As an author of two published books, What Are You Reaching For? and The Opportunity Guide, Sade has traveled the country impacting many lives. Now, as a doctoral student, Sade’s research focuses on exploring the impact leadership has on campus-based programs serving students who experienced foster care.
