“Hard Hats and Heels” is the theme for ESCAPE Family Resource Center’s 35th Annual Celebrity Serve Benefit dinner and auction, which will take place at the award-winning Tony's Restaurant on Sunday, April 10, 2016.

This popular fundraiser has been chaired by Joan Schnitzer Levy and Gerald Franklin for more than 30 years. It features local and national celebrities, who entertain, dine and mingle with guests to raise funds needed to help prevent child abuse and neglect in the Greater Houston community. Guests will be dazzled with an amazing live auction, limited edition raffles, fun games and more.

There is so much to celebrate at ESCAPE. Leadership, staff, volunteers and supporters of the agency are donning their “HARD HATS” and kicking up their “HEELS” with excitement over a new building ESCAPE has purchased and is renovating in Midtown. The facility will become a central hub for education and support for parents and professionals in the Greater Houston area and beyond, allowing ESCAPE to dramatically expand much needed programs and access to them.

Building a healthy and confident family starts with creating a strong foundation, and having the right tools to achieve this is an essential part of the blueprint for success. ESCAPE Family Resource Center’s child abuse prevention and parenting programs provide services in at-risk communities – to the families that need them the most – and involve the entire family in the learning process. ESCAPE is the only organization of its kind in Houston, educating parents and children in the prevention of child abuse. Classes are taught in English and Spanish, in more than 80 locations in the Greater Houston area.

You can help ESCAPE construct happy homes in Houston and break the cycle of abuse by making plans to sponsor a table at this memorable event. For more information about becoming a sponsor or donating an item for our auction, please contact Sandi Mercado, Director of Development and Communications, smercado@learntoparent.org or by calling (713) 942-9500, ext.

  2. So does her shallowness and bleached hair. Gene Norman was hotter and a thousands times better as a meteorologist. What does she offer? Nothing.
