Family Compass is charging ahead with plans for its 2021 fundraising North Star Luncheon “to raise awareness on how to stop child abuse before it occurs.”
Family Compass CEO Ona Foster just sent word that board member Judy Bennett Garner and longtime supporter Chey Fleming will co-chair the event along with Family Compass supporter/philanthropist Kathryn Woods serving as honorary chair.
According to Ona, “We are thrilled to have this tremendous leadership team in place for our third annual luncheon, which raises much needed funds in support of our mission to build healthy families and a strong North Texas community by preventing child abuse and neglect. In these uncertain times, it is more important than ever that Family Compass continues to be a ‘north star’ of the 2,000 children and parents we serve each year.”
While plans call for the in-person luncheon to take place on Monday, April 26, at the Dallas Country Club, the co-chairs along with the Family Compass staff already have Plan B that offers “a variety of potential scenarios due to the pandemic” including a virtual presentation for those unable to attend.
Tickets and sponsorship opportunities will be available starting Monday, January 11. But if you can’t wait to line up a sponsorship, contact Chad Black at 214.370.9810.
Stay tuned for the announcement of the virtual keynote speaker and recognition of the North Star Awardee.
