“Bags, Bingo and Badges” coincides with April being “Child Abuse Awareness Month.” As a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization, affiliated with the Children’s Advocacy Centers of Texas, the new Children’s Alliance Center for Palo Pinto County exists to help restore the lives of victims of child abuse and their non-offending family members. It also brings together local law enforcement investigators, Children’s Protective Services’ investigators, prosecutors and medical professionals on the CACPPC’s multidisciplinary team. In addition to helping the victims, the team will collaboratively review cases, conduct forensic interviews and work together to build cases against alleged perpetrators.
While sponsorships to the event are available until March 20 – unless sold out before – the CACPPC would like to thank the following local event sponsors who have already committed to joining the battle against child abuse: First Financial Bank, Titan Bank, Barbara Upham and Bob Dempsey, Community National Bank, Jonell Inc., Farm Bureau Insurance, Ace Hardware, Jack Powell Auto Group, NSC Properties, Clark Gardens, Sheree Patterson & Kim Kinniard, Mr C’s and Cole’s Flowers. Sponsorships range from $300 to $2500. For sponsorship information, please contact Joy Eaton at 817-991-9574.
As CACPPC President Mike Burns told Palo Pinto County Commissioner’s Court earlier this month, “Bags, Bingo and Badges” is not just for women, but is also a chance for men to come home heroes by bringing their significant other a very nice bag.
Come join the fun and snag a new bag.
