TexProtects 2019 Awards Gala

Calling all Champions 4 Texas Children!

It’s time to get on board the TexProtects Express departing October 3, 2019 at 6:00 PM from the Eddie Bernice Johnson Union Station! Honorary Chairs Bob and Cathy Estrada and Event Chair Elizabeth Post invite you to journey back to the 1930s – the heyday of train travel – with 10 fabulous chef “stations” featuring North Texas’ top restaurants serving diverse cuisine inspired from cities with the most famous train stations from around the globe, a live and silent auction and much, much more!

We will be celebrating TexProtects’ work and mission to protect Texas children from the trauma of abuse and neglect through research, education, and advocacy and their success during the 2019 Texas Legislative session to further prevent childhood trauma and maltreatment. This year TexProtects will honor State Representative Tan Parker with the Children’s Champion Award for his dedication and leadership during session to end childhood abuse and neglect through meaningful policy.
