Raise the roof benefits CAC after roof collapse

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Some generous Lubbockites gathered Friday evening for a good cause; an event called Raise The Roof at the Legacy Event Center for music, food, art to benefit the Children's Advocacy Center.  

During the record-setting rain and flooding in July, the CAC roof collapsed. While the CAC did have insurance, it not cover the roof collapse.

Carmen Aguirre, the CAC's Executive Director, says, "Just to replace the roof, the lowest bid I've had is $86,000 all the way up to $125,000. So it's a lofty goal to achieve."

No word yet on how much money the event raised, but prior to Friday evening, they had raised almost $18,000. And so the effort continues.  You can provide a donation of any amount at any branch of First Bank and Trust.

In the last 12 or so years, the Children's Advocacy Center has helped more than 9,000 children who have been the victims of crime.
