The CCAI's Angels in Adoption™ Gala is one of Washington, DC's most inspiring events that seeks to bring awareness to the millions of children around the globe living without a loving family to call their own. This is an evening you do not want to miss!
Angels in Adoption™ provides Members of Congress the opportunity to honor an individual, couple, or organization from their state that have made an extraordinary contribution on behalf of children in need of homes. These heroes hail from all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and Puerto Rico and represent the wide spectrum of individuals involved in the adoption and foster care process. Since the program’s inception in 1999, over 1,800 Angels have received this honor. CCAI also honors a select number of National Angels in Adoption™. As the name implies, these are individuals whose contributions in the fields of adoption or foster care have had a national impact.
This year's National Angels in Adoption™ awardees are actress Katherine Heigl, singer/songwriter Josh Kelley, award winning R&B singer-songwriter and actor NE-YO and PEOPLE Magazine.
Musical entertainment will be provided by award winning singer/songwriter Steven Curtis Chapman.
Past recipients of this award include Sean and Leigh Anne Tuohy, First Lady Laura Bush, Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, Kristin Chenoweth, Rhea Perlman, Bruce Willis, Al Roker, Muhammad Ali, Patti LaBelle, Jane Seymour, Henry Winkler, Scott Fujita, Nia Vardalos and CBS Studios.
