We are excited to announce that the proceeds from this event will be benefiting the Children’s Advocacy Center in Pittsburg. The Children’s Advocacy Center serves the children of the Pittsburg community. Their child safety specialists work closely with local support services and law enforcement agencies, such as the Pittsburg Police Department, to provide children with a safe and comfortable space to conduct forensic interviews. The CAC of Pittsburg aims to provide a child-focused environment to reduce the traumatic effects of child abuse, protect children from maltreatment, and investigate as a team.
