SAN ANGELO – The Children’s Advocacy Center of Tom Green County’s (CAC) 17th Annual Champagne and Diamonds fundraiser is set for Wednesday, February 14, 2018. The premier, sold out, event will be held at the Historic Cactus Hotel. Cocktails, music, and silent auction begin at 6:30 p.m. with champagne, dinner, and live auction to follow.

The evening will sparkle with anticipation as glasses of champagne are sold in limited quantity for $100 each.  One lucky winner will walk away with a glass of champagne containing the $5,000 one-carat diamond, generously donated by Mark Priest with Legend Jewelers.  All remaining glasses will contain a one-carat cubic zirconia. 

Four compassionate community members will be honored for their dedication and commitment to the mission of the Children’s Advocacy Center. Special guest, and 30-year CASA volunteer Lore Dietrich will share her impact as a Court Appointed Special Advocate to ensure the evening is filled with hope.
