Child Advocates of Fort Bend’s NEW Davis George Campus
5403 Avenue N, Rosenberg, TX 77471

These challenging times have cuased us to be innovative in the ways we can raise the unrestricted funds we depend on to serve the children. We’ve decided to combine our Gala and our Voices for Children Breakfast into one fabulous event – the Transforming Lives Summer Soiree. Hosting this event at our new 18,000 sq. ft. Davis George Campus, enables us to reduce our expenses while honoring social distancing with an indoor & outdoor arena.  Upon entering our building you’ll follow the path a child takes when they come to our Center and will be enlightened on the multitude of services we offer and why they are necessary. The evening’s events include live and silent auction, wine & restaurant pulls, raffle, music, delicious food and more!

Make your reservation today to join us for our indoor/outdoor socially distant friendly event. Stay tuned for the link to our online auction and watch our facebook page for previews of auction items.

CAFB is closely following all guidelines set forth by Fort Bend County and the State of Texas. Guests are welcome to attend at their own comfort. Should you wish to wear a mask or gloves during the evening you may. The indoor/outdoor venue will allow guests to mingle where they are comfortable. The cocktail tables outdoor will be set 6’ apart with 4 bar stools and room for guests to mingle elsewhere. All food and beverage servers will be wearing masks and gloves. CAFB has installed hand sanitizer stations throughout the building and individual sanitizers will be available as well. The quantity of guests congregating in enclosed rooms will be monitored.

Let’s hope not, but if so, stay tuned to our website and social media pages for alternate plans as needed.

Child Advocates of Fort Bend provides a comprehensive suite of services to children who have been abused or neglected (and their families) through two nationally-affiliated programs – Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) and Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC). 11.29% of our total operating budget comes from events and general donations. These unrestricted funds allow us to fund the critical areas of the agency that are not covered under Foundation or Government grants, such as salaries and overhead expenses. Foundation and Government grants are awarded for designated programs and positions.
