The Pull for Kids Classic is Child Advocates’ largest fundraiser. It will kick off Saturday morning with the annual Pull for Kids Classic Sporting Clays Tournament for both individual and corporate teams at the American Shooting Centers. The clay shoot will include great food, games and fun giveaways. It is sure to be a wonderful time, all while benefiting Child Advocates and ‘pulling’ for our kids

Our relaxed, evening party will entertain you with a delicious dinner and drinks plus incredible live, silent and big board auction items—all while we share a moving story about our mission.

Your investment is needed more than ever and will support Child Advocates’ work implementing essential programs to better address the unique and complex needs of foster youth and help them heal from childhood trauma. Please join us as we raise $600,000 this year to give Child Advocates the resources to serve 1,800 children in 2022. 

About Child Advocates

Every 8 minutes, a child in Texas experiences abuse or neglect.
Last year over, 6,000 children in the Houston area experienced such life-threatening abuse or neglect that they had to be removed from their homes and placed in foster care. Child Advocates trains everyday people to advocate for the best interests of these children in court so they can find safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible.

Damarius said, "I just want to go to school. I want to graduate and I want to go to college." So Coy made sure he didn't fall through the cracks.
