Gala is about coming together and taking a stand against child abuse in our very own community. We will not let social distancing stop us from a social connection with YOU, our supporters. Your support, despite the April 4th Gala cancellation, will show the children of Collin County that they do not stand alone. While many things have been affected by the pandemic in one way or another, our mission and commitment to the children we serve has not. The work we do here at Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County is crucial to many children and families in our community.

Despite an economic crisis, we are happy to announce that over $200,000 was raised for the children we serve through “Wings of Hope” donations and our online auction. You helped us make sure that no child who has experienced abuse or neglect goes without the services they need to go on to heal and lead healthy happy lives.

If you weren’t able to join us for the Gala 2020 broadcast, please find a link below of the entire event. We would love for you to experience it. It was certainly a fun, new approach and we enjoyed connecting with all of you!
