MURFREESBORO – “The Child Advocacy Center needs local businesses, civic groups, and individuals to make the Light Up the Night end of summer party sparkle,” announced Child Advocacy Center Development Coordinator Katie Enzor.   

The Child Advocacy Center is hosting the 5th Annual Light Up the Night event on Friday, September 9, 2022 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at Oakland’s Mansion, Murfreesboro.  The party of the season will include entertainment, dancing, heavy hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and an amazing silent auction.   


This is where you come in.  Show our community your commitment to child abuse victims.  Sponsorships range from $250-$5,000.  Please register online at by the July 11, 2022 deadline for your name or business name to be included on the party invitations.  

The Child Advocacy Center works as a team with the Department of Children’s Services, law enforcement, and the District Attorney’s Office to respond to child abuse cases, investigate the crime, aggressively prosecute offenders, help children heal, and help families rebuild their shattered lives.  In the last 22 years, the Center and the Child Protective Investigative Team have impacted the lives of 12% of the population of Rutherford and Cannon Counties by helping 40,071 people.   

Your partnership will support crisis intervention services for child abuse victims, child sexual abuse victims, drug endangered children, and child sexual abuse prevention trainings to educate parents, grandparents, and professionals how to protect children from child sexual abuse.   

“This event brings to light the serious issue of child sexual abuse.  Crimes against children, like child sexual abuse, often occur in the dark,” said Child Advocacy Center director De Boer.  “Your sponsorship will support the youngest and most vulnerable crime victims in our community.”
