We are delighted to be chairing Gala 2018 - "Deep in the Heart of Collin County", bringing this fabulous event back to our community. This year's theme was selected for several reasons, the most important- this premier event coming back to Collin County, where over 60,000 children and families have been provided essential services at the Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County for over 25 years. 

We are passionate about the mission of Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County - providing safety, healing, and justice to children victimized by abuse and neglect. Collin County is truly a great place to work and live, but we would be naive to think that child abuse and neglect are not critical issues when just this past year there were 4,383 alleged victims of child abuse in Collin County. With our community continuing to grow, our commitment must grow as well.

We ask you to please stand with us at Gala 2018 - "Deep in the Heart of Collin County" for our community's most vulnerable children. 

Entertainment: Jake Owenjake square 300

This year marks Jake Owen's 10th anniversary, a track record that is increasingly becoming a rarity in today's popular music landscape. Since releasing his debut album on RCA Records in 2006, Startin' With Me, he has become one of today's most popular male country singers for his irresistible melodies, smooth vocals and laid-back attitude. 

American Love, Owen's most recent album, has spurred an exciting new chapter in his award-winning career that has earned five number-one-hits- "Barefoot Blue Jean Night," "Beachin," "The One That Got Away," "Alone With You," "Anywhere With You." Over the years he has become a beacon of positive vibes through his uplifting lyrics and melodies, optimism, love of the beach, and his youthful spontaneity. "Music truly seems to be the one thing that is the healing factor in a lot of people's lives. I will always be grateful for music, whether I am performing or listening." 

Get ready for a rocking show with Jake Owen at Gala 2018.
