Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County Gala

Gala 2015 here we come and what a spectacular Gala it will be! Join us at the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, May 2, 2015 for a lively evening filled with excitement and energy. We will come together to unite as one in the fight against child abuse to enjoy a lovely evening topped off with an energetic concert by The Pointer Sisters!

Additionally, we are proud to introduce our Event Chairs, Cathy & Richard Riccardi. It is virtually impossible for anyone to know Cathy and Richard without knowing about the Center and its mission—they have loyally supported the Center since 2002 and are two of our most generous supporters. They are strong ambassadors within the community and abroad for the children we serve, and we are incredibly grateful for their unwavering passion to end child abuse. When asked why they chose to support the Center Richard said, "Our hearts break for the thousands of children who suffer abuse in our community every year, so we continue to support the Advocacy Center that provides exceptional healing services to these victimized children.”

With them at the helm, we know Gala 2015 will bring yet another amazing event with amazing outcomes.
