March 27th, 2021

Gala is traditionally our largest annual fundraiser, generating over $1.2 million, and is considered one of the premier events in Collin County. As much as we wish gatherings over the coming year could continue as normal, we know that is not possible. The success of our Gala directly impacts our ability to continue to provide life-changing services to the children who need us.

The stars are aligning for Gala 2021. While we can’t gather in person, DON’T MISS this opportunity to come together virtually for amazing headline entertainment, the ever-popular Lexus Car Raffle, a fantastic auction with experiences and trips, and other exciting surprises!



The Evening of March 27th, 2021


Let’s connect in an environment you feel comfortable and make Gala 2021 a little more interactive!

Interested in gathering a small group of family and friends to watch this special virtual experience? Please contact Dana Packard Special Events Manager for more details!

Lexus Car Raffle

This year DFW Lexus Dealers have donated a 2021 Lexus IS for the raffle. This amazing donation allows us to raise $125,000 annually with 100% of the proceeds going toward critical services for children and families affected by child abuse in our community.

Join us virtually for the Gala 2021 drawing the evening of Saturday, March 27th.

By purchasing a car raffle ticket for $50, you have a 1 in 2,500 chance of winning
a brand new 2021 Lexus IS, and you will be a part of providing vital services to
children and families who have been victimized by abuse.

honorary chairs

Melissa & Steve Grimshaw

Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County (CACCC) is excited to introduce the Gala 2021 Honorary Chairs, Melissa and Steve Grimshaw. Melissa and Steve have been friends of the Advocacy Center since 2012 and have generously supported the Center loyally since that time. When asked why they choose to be involved with CACCC, they responded, “as the parents of three children who all grew up in Collin County, we want to provide whatever support we can to help eliminate child abuse as we too, like the Center, envision a community free from child abuse. Unfortunately, we understand the current reality, so we want to be a part of providing hope to the children and families in our community affected by child abuse and neglect. Our community’s children deserve the best childhood possible, and we are honored to support the Advocacy Center’s proven approach.” 

Melissa and Steve are proud to be the Gala 2021 Honorary Chairs and are passionate about encouraging ongoing community support and involvement with Children’s Advocacy Center of Collin County.


This year no goods and services will be received, therefore your contribution will be 100% tax deductible. Questions? Please contact Lori Geer, VP of Development.
