Child Advocates of Fort Bend (CAFB) invites you to dive under the warm blue ocean with us to experience our Treasures Under the Sea Gala on May 4, 2013 in the Ballroom of the Sugar Land Marriott Town Square beginning at 6:00 pm. Immerse yourself in an elegant evening of delightful treasures, ocean spectacles, and unpredictable shipwrecks. Paired with a delicious dinner, melodies from the band Funksion, and a dynamic live and silent auction, the night is expected to be one-of-a-kind. 

Looking forward to a great Gala are L to R: Child Advocates of Fort Bend Program Assistant, Lianna Estrada; 2013 Board President, Mark Magee; Executive Director, Ruthanne Mefford; Events Specialist, Lisa Moore; and Honorary Chairs, Carole and Bob Brown (front).

CAFB is thrilled to have Carole and Bob Brown serving as Honorary Chairs for the Treasures Under the Sea Gala. “The work Child Advocates of Fort Bend does has such tremendous impact on so many children and their families. Carole and I are honored to be part of this event,” says Bob Brown. The presenting sponsor for this exciting event is Exchange Club of Sugar Land. 

“At the very heart of this event is the belief that every child deserves a safe and healthy childhood. Community participation in our Gala fundraiser is a crucial part of our mission to help children and families affected by child abuse,” says Ruthanne Mefford, executive director at Child Advocates of Fort Bend.
