Grammy Award winning performers The Pointer Sisters will be the featured artists for the Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County 2015 Gala, May 2 at the Hilton Anatole, Dallas. The evening will be proudly presented by longtime corporate sponsor Rent-A-Center. CACCC’s annual Gala benefits abused and neglected children who come to the Center to receive the help they need to heal from abuse.
From CACCC CEO Lynne McLean:
Gala is the must-attend event of the year in Collin County, and each year we are proud to welcome incredible performers, generous sponsors and committed donors who come together in the fight against child abuse. In a single evening, nearly $700,000 will be raised to help provide free healing services to children who have been victimized by abuse or neglect.
The Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County utilizes a multi-disciplinary team approach to facilitate the investigation, treatment and prosecution of child abuse. Working with law enforcement and Child Protective Services, the Center brings all services to abused children under one roof to minimize additional trauma to vulnerable children. Highly trained forensic interviewers provide a child-friendly environment in which children can safely share their stories. The Center then offers therapy and support for children and their non-offending family members at no cost for as long as clients need help.
Returning to Gala this year is the exciting Lexus car raffle proudly presented by DFW Lexus Dealers. DFW Lexus is once again donating a car for raffle with the winner to be selected at Gala on May 2. Raffle tickets are now available for $50 each at caccollincounty.org, and just 2,000 tickets will be sold. Winners need not be present to win.
Gala tickets and table sponsorships are also available. Individual tickets for this black tie event are $275. Sponsorships range in price from $2,500 to $100,000. Attendance is expected to top 1,000 guests. Gala highlights include live and silent auctions, mobile auction bidding and the Pointer Sisters’ energetic performance.
