Volunteer Banquet

2022 Volunteer Celebration

We celebrated our Volunteers on Thursday April 7, 2022 at Sugar Creek Country Club

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 220 people joined us on Thursday, April 22, 2021 for our celebration 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. All of our volunteers are superstars in our book and they walked the red carpet as we honored them (see video below).  We thank ALL of our wonderful volunteers for their exceptional service in 2021.
