The Child Advocacy Center is hosting the 6th annual Light Up the Night end of the summer party on Friday, September 8, 2023 from 6:00-9:00 p.m. at Oakland’s Mansion, Murfreesboro. Tickets are $125 per individual and include two complimentary drinks. A cash bar will be available. VIP tables for 10 individuals can also be purchased for $1,800. VIP reserved tables include 40 drink tickets and wine bottles for the table.

The Child Advocacy Center needs local businesses, civic groups, and individuals to make Light Up the Night a success and raise critically needed funds for services for child abuse victims. This is where you come in. Sponsorships range from $250-$5,000. Please register online at cacrutherford.org/events by the August 11, 2023 deadline for your name or business to be included on the invitations and event programs.

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 23 years, the Child Advocacy Center and the Child Protective Investigative Team have positively impacted the lives of 43,289 individuals in Rutherford and Cannon Counties.

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.

“Child sexual abuse and other crimes against children often occur in the dark. This event brings to light the serious issue of crimes against children,” said Child Advocacy Center director Sharon De Boer. “Come out, enjoy a magnificent end of the summer party, and support our communities youngest and most vulnerable members—child abuse victims.”
