Accolades 2024: The Texas Academy Awards of Child Advocacy

November 1 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

This is a very special year for CHILDREN AT RISK as we celebrate 35 years of advocacy for those who need it most – our children! Our annual Accolades Luncheon, The Texas Academy Awards of Child Advocacy, has recognized numerous child advocates in our communities, elevated key priorities for children, and raised critical funds to support our mission to improve the quality of life for Texas children. This year’s luncheon will be held on Friday, November 1, 2024, at the beautiful Hotel Zaza Museum District in Houston from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m and will be a culmination of our year-long 35th anniversary celebrations! 

 We are delighted to have our past CHILDREN AT RISK Board Chairs as our Accolades Event Chairs for this year’s Luncheon. As we celebrate our 35th Anniversary, we will highlight the critical importance of child advocacy to enact systems change that will lead to long-term positive impact for children.  CHILDREN AT RISK continues to lead the way in driving change so that every child receives equitable opportunities, a quality education, access to nutrition and healthcare, and is free from the dangers of human trafficking and exploitation.    

We had a fabulous time last year!

Last year, we were honored to have Robert and Georgiana Ladd and Ben and Mary Patton as Chairs and to give extra ‘kudos’ to our honoree Dr. Ruth Simmons, a native Texan and a trail blazer in the field of education on a national level.
