Purpose of Event
The purpose of the annual Champions for Children event is to be a major source of funding for the operation of the facility and its ongoing mission at the CACDC. The event will bring together prominent chefs, high profile sports celebrities and a showcase of fine beverages for one common purpose..to aid the CACDC in accomplishing its critical mission.
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.
The concept of law enforcement, Child Protective Services, prosecutors, therapists, and volunteers working together in one location to provide justice and healing IS making a positive difference in Denton County.
