Raise the Roof event to assist Children's Advocacy Center

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Raise the Roof, an August 6th event scheduled to coincide with First Friday Art Trail activities, has been organized to help raise money for roof repairs at the Children's Advocacy Center of the South Plains facility.

Raise the Roof will run from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at the Legacy Event Center, located at 14th Street and Avenue O. The event will feature music provided by Music to the Maxx, art, appetizers and beverages. A donation to the CAC of at least $10 will be required for admission.

Heavy rains damaged the 13,000-square-foot CAC facility during the July 4 weekend, causing water damage to the ceiling of the center's forensic interview observation room. The ceiling of the room collapsed, damaging not only the building, but also the equipment in the room. Water also leaked through the roof in the office supply storage room and janitorial closet, and water permeated the building's electronics room, which houses the telephone trunk system, electrical system and Internet junctions. Water also leaked through the roof and drop-ceiling in the building's main hallway.

The damages will not be covered by the agency's insurance provider because they were not hail- or wind-related.

A Children's Advocacy Center fund has been established at First Bank & Trust. Those interested in contributing to the account to help restore the agency's building should contact Hana Robertson at First Bank & Trust.

The Children's Advocacy Center of the South Plains opened its doors in April 1998. Since that time the agency has provided services to more than 9,000 children. CAC provides forensic interviews of abused children, free therapy for child victims of abuse, family advocacy, courtroom accompaniment and orientation, and community education about child abuse.
