CACCC Gala 2015

Saturday, May 2, 2015 | 6:00p.m.

Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas

Featuring The Pointer Sisters

Join us May 2 for Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County's annual Gala, a lively evening topped with an energetic concert by The Pointer Sisters. Gala is CACCC's signature fundraising event and brings our community together in the fight against child abuse.

CACCC's annual Gala is the highlight of the social season and a can't-miss event. Each year, more than 1,000 supporters and friends gather at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas for this exciting black-tie event. Gala 2015 will be proudly presented by Rent-A-Center and will feature silent and live auctions, entertainment and the exciting Lexus raffle proudly sponsored by DFW Lexus Dealers and featuring an opportunity for the raffle winner to choose between two beautiful vehicles. New to Gala 2015 is the implementation of mobile bidding for our silent auction.

Event chairs are Fairview residents Cathy and Richard Riccardi. It is impossible to know Cathy and Richard without also being aware of CACCC and its mission to provide safety, healing and justice to children victimized by abuse or neglect. Cathy and Richard are true CACCC ambassadors for the children we serve, and we are grateful for their unwavering dedication to ending child abuse.

"Our hearts break for the thousands of children who suffer abuse in our community every year, so we continue to support the Advocacy Center which provides exceptional healing services to these victimized children," Richard Riccardi said.
