Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo are truly a rock-n-roll power house couple. Neil has been a professional musician, producer, arranger and songwriter for over four decades and changed the face of the pop charts throughout the 1980s with his collaborator, muse and wife, Pat Benatar. More than just an explosive steel bending guitar player, Giraldo’s innovative vision helped him create the signature Benatar sound, from its inception.

A four-time Grammy winner, Benatar is a classically trained mezzo-soprano. During the 1980s, Benatar had 19 Top 40 singles, including the Top 10 hits, "Hit Me With Your Best Shot", "Love Is a Battlefield", "We Belong", “Shadows of the Night” and “Heartbreaker”. Her hits continue to be as unforgettable now as they were at the dawn of MTV, when Pat emerged, fighting and forging a path for other female rock stars around the world.

Stephanie has been a member of the CACCC’s Board of Directors since 2000 and currently serves as the CACCC Board President. Gene and Stephanie have both been members of the Guardian Angel Society for nearly 20 years and proudly advocate for the children we serve within the community as volunteers and as donors. The thought of making a difference in the life of a child who has been through a traumatic event like abuse or neglect is the fuel that strengthens their loyal support.

“Our community is healthy and strong,” states Stephanie. “Ensuring that everyone who lives in our growing county knows we are here to serve them is critical. Gene & I encourage you to stand with us so no child is left to face abuse or neglect alone in Collin County. Here we are celebrating 25 years of service – pausing to recognize all the great work that has been accomplished thus far – what a proud moment! But, we must press on and we need the support of this great community so we can ensure that the Center can continue to offer FREE services to 100% of the children and families that come through the Center doors.”

Each year, Gala raises critically needed funds that provide essential services to abused children in our community. Become a Gala 2017 sponsor and you will join an elite group of Collin County supporters united around an incredible cause - providing safety, healing and justice to abused and neglected children in our community.
