BRYAN In celebration of 50 years of service in the Brazos Valley, Fred Davis of Davis & Davis Lawyers is underwriting the Voices for Children, Inc. Benefit Concert on November 15, 2013 featuring the Latino rock of Texas' own Del Castillo at Grand Stafford Theater, Downtown Bryan's premier live music venue.
Del Castillo has toured nationwide with such diverse acts as Styx, Los Lonely Boys, Ozomatli, Don Henley, Los Lobos and Willie Nelson. With production support from Advent GX, ticket proceeds will directly benefit Voices for Children, Inc. in their mission to serve the neglected and abused children of the Brazos Valley.
Fred Davis of Davis & Davis Lawyers is proud to support Voices for Children, Inc. as part of the firm's campaign to commemorate their 50th Anniversary in 2013 by donating $50,000 to local charitable organizations. Celebrating 50 years of Texans helping Texans, Fred Davis chose Voices for Children, Inc. as one of these organizations, understanding the importance of Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) in representing neglected and abused children in our community.
In FY 2013, Voices for Children’s 101 CASA volunteers advocated for 242 abused and neglected children in Brazos, Burleson, and Grimes counties, placing 80 children in safe, permanent homes. Each CASA volunteer serves as Guardian ad Litem for one child or sibling set throughout the child welfare court system. CASAs provide the detailed information necessary for judges to safeguard the children’s best interests and ensure they are placed in safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible.
