April is Child Abuse Awareness Month

Dixon Family Services has a banner out in our front yard, we will receive a proclamation from Dixon City Council on April 11, the Solano County Board of Supervisors recognized it (Child Abuse Awareness) on April 4 and there are numerous events around our county highlighting the issue this month.  We (Dixon Family Services) have several new documents linked to our website from Solano County Children’s Alliance and the Greater Bay Area Child Abuse Prevention Council Coalition and we encourage you to read them.  Go to www.dixonfamilyservices.org

A very important point to make about this terrible issue is that Child Abuse, in its many forms, happens every day and has major negative impacts on the futures of those children.

Child Abuse, in its many forms, happens every day and has major negative impacts on the futures of those children. Recognizing Child Abuse – What Every Parent Should Know

As stated in the City of Dixon Proclamation, child abuse puts those children at much greater risk of alcoholism, depression, drug abuse, eating disorders, obesity, sexual promiscuity, smoking, certain chronic diseases and suicide. Dixon City Council Meeting April 11, 2017 Archive.

In Dixon in 2016 there were 229 cases reported. Referral Summary by City 2016

Dixon Family Services’ Summer Fun-raising Event, Comedy Night 2017, is scheduled for Saturday, July 22.   Every year this event is a smashing hit with everyone who attends.  This year is expected to be even bigger and better!  Don’t regret missing the funniest night in Dixon.  Get your tickets early before sold out.


The elegantly renovated Olde Vet’s Hall adds a level of comfort and class to the hot summer’s funniest night in Dixon.  But don’t be mistaken, this is a casual affair.  Wear something with an elastic waist for a delicious tri-tip dinner, decadent desserts and hilarious entertainment.


Comedy Night has become a signature fundraising event for Dixon Family Services over the years.  The Comedy Night event is an opportunity for all community members to come out and support the non-profit organization, while having a great time. 


The evening begins at 6:00 with social time, no-host bar, a chance to see a large array of raffle prizes and to socialize.  Then a tri-tip dinner, courtesy of Recology, will be served at 7.

Then, at 8 “The Show” begins and heavy laughter is predicted.


Tickets are $50 in advance and $55 for reserved seating.  Tickets will soon be available to purchase at Dixon Family Services at 155 North Second Street, The Dixon Tribune at 145 East A Street and The Dixon Family Services Thrift Store at 1150 North First Street and The Dixon Florist at 150 East A Street.   


Everyone is encouraged to get tickets early as there is a maximum capacity and tickets do sell fast.  There is an option of purchasing an entire table so you can be assured to sit with your friends, family and/or co-workers.   And new this year will be the option of reserved seating so everyone will have a seat, even if you arrive a bit late.  


Additional support is needed in a variety of ways.  Sponsorships, donations and raffle prizes are all greatly appreciated.  For more information contact Cookie at Dixon Family Services, 678-0442 or email cookie@dixonfamilyservices.org .
