Pandemic or not, Child Advocates of Fort Bend needs financial support to help fund critical needs and their Summer Soiree planning team is hard at work planning for a socially distanced event. “COVID-19 forced us to cancel and re-think our Gala and our Voices for Children fundraising breakfast earlier this year but we’re looking at this as an opportunity to help the community better understand the work that we do. We’ve combined both events into a Transforming Lives Summer Soiree, moved the location from the Marriott to our new Davis George Campus and are shifting our format, opening the doors and moving parts of the event outside,” stated Development Director Lisa Moore. “Guests will be able to walk the path a child takes when they come to our Children’s Advocacy Center and CASA Program and learn more about the multitude of services that we offer and why they are necessary. Our hope is that everyone will leave with a much clearer picture of the work that we do.”
“Our guests are going to have a fantastic time while raising much needed funds to support abused and neglected children with immediate and long-term sustainability of our agency’s programs. It will be a festive evening with all the usual Gala items and a few new ones,” stated Moore. “We are paying attention to the numbers and guidelines about safe distancing and working on plans and backup plans in the event that we will cannot gather in person, although we really hope that is not the case.”
