The Bonnes Meres Auxiliary

Bonnes Meres, meaning “Good Mothers” in French, was founded in 1958 and continues today as an auxiliary of Children’s Fund. 


Bonnes Meres produces two highly successful events, including the famed Fall Auction and the Spring Birthday Luncheon. Over 5,000 birthday gifts for children in foster care were collected this year, ensuring all foster children in our county will feel loved and honored on their birthday.


In the last year, the Bonnes Meres Auxiliary volunteered over 3,800 hours and provided Children’s Fund with a check for $75,000.
