The Children's Advocacy Center of Collin County's Gala 2017 will be held on April 29
. This year, we are privileged to have Hyatt Regency Dallas
as our host. We will feature a headline performance by Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo
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.
