Cherishing Children Annual Dinner & Awards Presentation

Time: 6:30 - 9:00 pm

Join us on September 8, 2022, for our Cherishing Children Annual Dinner & Awards Presentation – chaired by John Laney, Senior Vice President, General Merchandise Manager for Walmart. The program is set to begin at 6:30pm at the Rogers Convention Center. We look forward to honoring those in our community who have gone above and beyond in our fight against child abuse.

This year’s dinner will feature guest speaker, Christina Meredith. Christina endured years of abuse, was in and out of the foster care system, and eventually aged out of the system at 18. She is now an intelligence officer with the Texas National Guard, a former Miss California pageant winner, a published author of a bestselling memoir, and a national speaker.

“My entire story is about hope, faith, hard work, achieving the dream and the purpose that you have been given in this life, and not allowing things to deter you, because circumstances change. With hard work a little faith, you can make them change,” said Christina

Sponsorships are still available. Please email Melanie Halbrook,, for more information.
