SAVE THE DATE: Eileen and Callie’s Place’s ‘Celebrate 18!’ event will be held from 2 – 8 p.m. at the Auburn Community & Event Center on Wednesday, July 23, 2022.

Celebrate 18! is an annual state-wide birthday party held in mid-July for young girls aging out of foster care.

If you were born in 2004 or have experienced the foster care system and did not have a birthday party when you turned 18, this party is for you! Come enjoy shopping with a personal shopper, pampering by hair stylists and makeup artists, lots of bithday gifts just for you, and dinner catered by Alki Bakery!

The day-long event is an opportunity for these girls to be pampered with new clothes, shoes, jewelry, and services by professional hairdressers and makeup artists.

The party concludes with a catered dinner, the Happy Birthday song, messages from foster alum and tons of gifts.

“Celebrate 18! is a birthday celebration they will never forget.”

Here’s a video recap of their 2021 event:
