Purpose of Event
The purpose of the annual Champions for Children event is to be a major source of funding for the Children's Advocacy Center for Denton County (CACDC) and its ongoing mission of justice and healing for abused children. The event will bring together prominent chefs, high profile sports celebrities, a live and silent auction, live band and wine tasting. Proceeds from this gala event will help fund CACDC's child abuse programs.
The Children's Advocacy Center for Denton County (CACDC) provides justice and healing to victims of child abuse. It is a public/private collaboration that strives to minimize the trauma of child abuse through a team approach to the investigation, prosecution, and treatment of serious child abuse cases.
In 2011 alone, CACDC interviewed 705 children suspected of being abused, provided over 9,000 therapy services, and helped bring 83 perpetrators to justice for their crimes against our most vulnerable children.
