Voice for Children Gala 2017

The Magic of Wonderland

“You know what the issue is with this world?
Everyone wants some magical solution to their problems
and everyone refuses to believe in magic.”

Please join us as we celebrate the 2017 Voice for Children GALA, The Magic of WONDERLAND, Saturday, April 22, 2017, at the always beautiful and timeless InterContinental Hotel Dallas.

From the moment you arrive in WONDERLAND, until the time you say goodnight…you will follow Alice and her friends through the Looking Glass into a world of fantasy and fun! Your evening will be filled with the high energy, live sounds of the Mars Hill Band, a Mad Hatter contest, Casino, fabulous items in Live and Silent Auction. As if that’s not enough, what would a magical evening be without a master magician…Diamond Jim Tyler!

You will move along the path in WONDERLAND through the eyes of Alice and her friends, as you see her dreams come to life. A fantasy childhood very different from the nightmare existence of the CASA child. I believe you will come away from Gala 2017 knowing why your attendance and support is so critical to the CASA mission.

“When you can’t look on the bright side. I will sit with you in the dark.” This quote speaks to the spirit and essence of the CASA Volunteer Advocate. The CASA is there holding the hand of the child, while they sit through the darkest times in their young lives.

These children are our future and we are dedicated to supporting them. A CASA is a trained advocate who provides a consistent, strong and clear voice for abused and neglected children as they navigate a complicated legal system. CASA often serves as the only stable, trusted adult in their lives as children encounter the changing dynamics of the foster care system.

All children deserve a safe and loving, forever home, free from abuse or neglect. Your support of the 2017 Voice for Children Gala will help ensure that each child removed by CPS for abuse or neglect has a CASA Volunteer Advocate that is their champion.

“Don’t be late for a very important date…”. Believe in MAGIC! Please join us in WONDERLAND!
