On Thursday, March 3, 2016, Chopard at River Oaks District hosted the Kick-Off Party for The Children’s Assessment Center’s 17th Annual Spirit of Spring Luncheon and Fashion Show.

Guests could not wait to try on the gorgeous piece – a Revolving Signature Chopardissimo Ring. This ring is 18K Rose Gold encrusted with 76 Diamonds at 0.28ct. Thank you to Chopard for a wonderful event and live auction piece! Additionally, Chopard will Donate 10% of your purchase to The Children's Assessment Center if you mention The CAC until May 31, 2016.

The luncheon will take place on Wednesday, April 20, 2016 at the Royal Sonesta. This year’s signature underwriter is Neiman Marcus and underwriters include: Leslie Alexander & The Houston Rockets, Kelley & Stephen Lubanko, H-E-B, The Robert and Janice McNair Foundation, Texas Children's Hospital, and Kelli & John Weinzierl. Sponsors this year include: American Air Liquide Holdings, Inc. / Rhonda and Michael Graff; Laura and John Arnold; Momentum Porsche; Debra and Mark Gregg / Stephanie and Gary Loveless - Square Mile Energy, LLC; and Jordan and Dylan Seff.

This year’s program will include former Miss America Marilyn Van Derbur, a survivor of child sexual abuse, who has devoted much of her adult life to raising national awareness and understanding of sexual abuse and its long-term effects. She has received numerous awards and acknowledgments for her work, including being the first woman to be given the highest speaking award possible by the National Speakers Association. In 1989 her family funded an adult incest survivor program in Denver, and in 1993 she co-founded two national not-for-profit organizations dedicated to public education and strengthening laws protecting victims of sexual abuse. In addition, Mark Wallace, President and Chief Executive Officer of Texas Children’s Hospital, will be honored for his outstanding work in making a difference in the lives of children. Funds raised at this event will support direct service programs that The CAC offers such as forensic interviews, medical, and therapy services which are critical to the hope and healing of young victims of sexual abuse. The Spirit of Spring Luncheon and Fashion Show begins with a reception at 11:00 a.m. and the luncheon and fashion show begins at 12:00 noon. Sponsorships are available ranging from $2,500 to $50,000. Limited individual tickets are offered at $200 each. For Information Contact: Madelyn Perry, Development Coordinator (713) 986-3370 or Madelyn.Perry@cac.hctx.net
