Cherish the Children

April 5 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

In recognition of their commitment to the children of our community, the Dallas CASA Children’s Council will honor Rosewood with the Caroline Rose Hunt Cherish the Children Award. Inspired by Mrs. Hunt and her constant dedication to the most vulnerable in our city, Rosewood Corporation and the Rosewood Foundation have been supporters of Dallas CASA for many years, making an impact on the lives of Dallas children through consistent and generous support.

The Cherish the Children luncheon raises funds for Dallas CASA by auctioning artfully-designed, one-of-a-kind children’s chairs and furnishings. Proceeds are used to support the volunteer advocates who help abused children find safe, permanent and loving homes.

We will also welcome guest speaker Steve Pemberton, the bestselling author of A Chance in the World, his heartbreaking memoir of a childhood in foster care recently released as a feature film. Pemberton is the Chief People Officer at Globoforce following executive stints at Walgreen’s and Monster.com. A relentless champion for those who have been left in the shadows, Pemberton will share his personal story of perseverance, his search for meaning and identity, and his motivation to create opportunities for others.
