Child Advocates of Fort Bend Announces 2014 Gala Plans


Child Advocates of Fort Bend (CAFB) invites guests to polish their glass slippers, press their best suit or slip into their ballgown and join us May 3rd in the Ballroom of the Sugar Land Marriott Town Square beginning at 6 pm. From the minute guests step out of their carriage and into the Marriott, it promises to be a magical evening of inspiring stories, fine food and entertainment with a live and silent auction filled with glamorous opportunities and beautiful objects. CAFB is thrilled to have Diana and John Null serving as Honorary Chairs for The Cinderella Ball.  Michele Fisher of The New 93Q and Michele Fisher Voice Overs will serve as emcee, and Randolph Holford will be the auctioneer.

“The work Child Advocates of Fort Bend does has such tremendous impact on so many children and their families. Diana and I are honored to be part of this event,” says John Null. The presenting sponsors for this exciting event are Exchange Club of Sugar Land, National Oilwell Varco and Sysco Corporation.

“At the very heart of this event is the belief that every child deserves a safe and healthy childhood. Community participation in our Gala fundraiser is a crucial part of our mission to help children and families affected by child abuse,” says Ruthanne Mefford, executive director at Child Advocates of Fort Bend.
