Children's Advocacy Center hosts golf tournament

Children's Advocacy Center hosts golf tournament

Teams are now forming for the very first Children’s Advocacy Center golf tournament, which will take place on Friday, April 12 at Harbor Oaks Golf Course in Pine Bluff. The four-person scramble will begin at 1:00 p.m., and the $300 entry fee will also include lunch and prizes.

The mission of the Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) of Pine Bluff is to reduce the trauma to abused children during the investigation and prosecution of child abuse cases. “Nearly 70% of all reported sexual assaults are on children 17 and under,“ explains executive Director Christa Menotti. “Prosecutors, law enforcement, medical support staff, counselors and co-workers come together in our child-friendly location to interview the victims and non-offending family members.”  Funded almost entirely by grants, the golf tournament is the CAC’s first major fundraiser in Pine Bluff.

Celebrate Red Cross Month by getting involved

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (March 4, 2013) — During Red Cross Month, the American Red Cross invites everyone to support their communities by giving blood or platelets, volunteering, taking a class or making a financial donation. Those involved enable the Red Cross to continue to help people prevent, prepare for and respond to emergencies.

Like the emergency room of a hospital, the Red Cross must be prepared to respond to patient needs around the clock. With the generous support of blood donors, the Red Cross can help ensure all patients have the blood products they need, no matter when or where.
