The Children’s Advocacy Center received a donation for its fifth annual Angel’s Autumn Fest called “Jeans and Gems” on Sept. 27. The gala event will help fund CAC activities.The center provides hope and healing to child abuse victims and their families, minimizes additional victimization as they interact with the system, and educates the community on the issue.Shannon Gulick, in marketing at First National Bank, says the bank will not be represented at the gala so the decision was made to support the worthwhile cause as a sponsor.“We can’t attend the event due to scheduling problems,” said Gulick. “We still wanted to support the Child’s Advocacy Center and be a sponsor.”Among the facility’s future plans is to establish a support group for adolescents.“We would like to offer them a place to go in the evening after school,” said CAC employee Connie McCormick.
