Henderson, TX (Longview News-Journal) — The Rusk County Children’s Advocacy Center is holding its first-ever fundraiser on Saturday, hoping to raise awareness of its services and money for it’s programs.
Boots & Bling — Kicking It Up For Kids will be held from 7 to 10 p.m. Saturday at the Henderson Civic Center, said executive director Kishla Salazar.
“With the economy the way it is, our donations have been down,” Salazar. “A lot of people also don’t really understand what we do, so this should be an opportunity to explain our services while we raise some much-needed funds. We hope it will become an annual event.”
The Rusk County Children's Advocacy Center mission is to reduce trauma, facilitate recovery, and present legally sound cases for prosecution when child abuse occurs in Rusk County or Panola County, she said.
