We are delighted to welcome back Credit Union of Texas as the presenting sponsor of Gala. Gala 2020, “A Kaleidoscope of Color” will be held at The Star in Frisco, TX and will feature entertainment by The Jordan Kahn Orchestra. This year’s event will include a three-course dinner, an impressive live auction filled with priceless items, the ever popular silent auction, and top-notch entertainment. Don’t miss this premier event! Tickets and sponsorships are now available!

Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County (CACCC) is excited to introduce the Gala 2020 Honorary Chairs, Melissa and Steve Grimshaw. Melissa and Steve have been friends of the Advocacy Center since 2012 and have generously supported the Center loyally since that time. When asked why they choose to be involved with CACCC, they responded, “as the parents of three children who all grew up in Collin County, we want to provide whatever support we can to help eliminate child abuse as we too, like the Center, envision a community free from child abuse. Unfortunately, we understand the current reality, so we want to be a part of providing hope to the children and families in our community affected by child abuse and neglect. Our community’s children deserve the best childhood possible, and we are honored to support the Advocacy Center’s proven approach.”

Melissa and Steve are proud to be the Gala 2020 Honorary Chairs and are passionate about encouraging ongoing community support and involvement with Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County.
