Child Advocates of Fort Bend (CAFB) invites everyone to iron their capes, press their best suits or slip into their ball gowns and join them April 30, 2016 in the ballroom of the Sugar Land Marriott Town Square for The Superhero Ball. From the minute guests fly into the Marriott, the event promises to be a supernatural evening of action heroes, motivating stories, delicious food and a live and silent auction filled with unique opportunities and exceptional objects.

CAFB recently held The Secret Garden Gala. With the help of Event Underwriter National Oilwell Varco and Presenting Sponsors Exchange Club of Sugar Land and Early McClintic & McMillan, the event was a record-breaking success.
