A Family For Every Child presents the 6th Annual “Hero for a Day”

May 18, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Foster children are heroes for a day in the Eugene area!


“If we could be heroes, if just for one day.” ~ David Bowie
Saturday May 18, 2019, 12 – 3 PM
Bob Keefer Center, Springfield, OR

We invite all children to come and discover the kind of hero they can be!

Hero for a Day is an opportunity for all children to become Heroes, spend time with heroes from our community and those from the pages of their favorite comic books.

Admission for foster children is free and General Admission is $50 at the door.

We are offering a special 50% discount to heroes that preregister! Email events@afamilyforeverychild.org for your discount and click here to register your hero today.

The General Admission ticket prices support the cost of a foster child in the community. Due to limited space, the event can only accommodate one adult with each registered child.

A Family for Every Child encourages donations from businesses and individuals. Individuals or organizations wishing to contribute to the event may access item wish-lists or sponsor different aspects of the event. We are currently in need of donations of hero costumes and take home bags to fill with goodies. You can find these items on our Amazon Wishlist by clicking here and you can sponsor a hero by clicking here.

For additional information regarding Hero For A Day or other inquiries, please contact Rachel at 541-343-2856 or by email at

Cost: Free for children in foster care. $50 at the door for each non-foster child and one (adult) guest, with the ticket price supporting the cost of a foster “hero” in the community. Pre-register on our website for a 50% discount! Email events@afamilyforeverychild.org to receive your discount.

Last year this event drew over 170 children, and most of those children were in foster care. This year, A Family for Every Child hopes to have over 200 heroes in action packed attendance. Every child will participate in action filled activities that are both fun and educational. They get to take all their Hero gear and a goodie bag home with them after the event and Roaring Rapids Pizza will provide lunch.

A Family For Every Child, a Eugene, Ore. based non-profit organization, created this event. Many local sponsors made it possible:

THANK YOU to our amazing sponsors. We couldn’t do it without you!
