Dust off your Zorro costumes and dig out your Batman masks — the annual Celebrating the Children Gala will be celebrating with a Mardi Gras theme when it returns for its 23rd year on Saturday, Feb. 3.
The gala will feature dance music by the Swingline Cubs, live and silent auctions, and a buffet dinner, with all proceeds going towards the Children’s Advocacy Center.
The non-profit center provides assessment, intervention, advocacy, forensic interviews, medical exams and counseling services for child victims of abuse and neglect throughout Lincoln County at no cost to the victims. In addition, the center provides child abuse-prevention training throughout the community. The center is a neutral, safe and child-friendly place where victims and their families can begin to heal.
The Celebrating the Children Gala will run from 6 to 11 pm at the Best Western Agate Beach Hotel, Newport.
Tickets, $90 each, or $850 for a table of 10, are available by calling 541-574-0841 or online at www.childrensadvocacycenter.net.
