Volunteer Banquet

Each Spring, Child Advocates of Fort Bend celebrates its incredible volunteers with a beautiful dinner and tribute. Volunteers are recognized with special awards including CASA Volunteer of the Year, CAC Volunteer of the Year, Event Volunteer of the Year, Lifetime Achievement Award and many others. The capstone of the evening is the Child Advocates of Fort Bend’s Volunteer of the Year. All volunteers are recognized for their hours and years of service.

More than 175 people joined us on Thursday, March 2, 2017 at Sweetwater Country Club to thank our volunteers and pay tribute to those special everyday heroes who do so much to change the lives of children who have been abused and neglected.
