Dear Friends,

Childhood is a time for innocence and hope.  A time for children to be carefree and to be able to dream of bright futures.  Every child deserves to grow up in an environment that is safe and free from harm.  Sadly, child abuse is a harsh reality facing children here in Lamar and Red River Counties.  We are fighting every day to bring awareness and action to these children whose carefree dreams have been taken away.  The CAC provides critical services to child victims of abuse as they go through the criminal justice system.  We are honored to have been part of the community for the past 18 years during which we have helped change the lives of over 3,700 child victims.

Our 17th Annual Sweetheart Soiree, “Growing Dreams” is just around the corner and we are excited to extend an opportunity for you to sponsor the 2018 Sweetheart Soiree and/or by donating a unique auction item. Sponsorship details can be found here.  Sponsorship is easy- just fill out this form and mail or email with payment and listing information. 

The Sweetheart Soiree will take place from 7:00 PM to 11:30 PM on Saturday, February 10, 2018, at the Love Civic Center. We are excited to welcome back China Town for our entertainment.  A delicious catered meal and complimentary beverages will be served.  Our live and silent auctions will showcase local items of interest for bidding.

We welcome the opportunity to talk with you further about our organization. Your generosity enables you to play a valuable part in “Growing Dreams” for child victims. We look forward to hearing from you soon. 


Thank you for your support!
