Frequently Asked Questions for Justice Is Served

Where are my tickets?

We are going paperless this year! No paper tickets to keep up with.  We will have names at the door.   When you purchase your tickets or table, please get us the names of the people who will be coming to the event.  They can check-in at the event with simply their name.

Last minute change of plans?

Simply tell your guests to check in by telling us their name and the name of the person they are substituting for.

What should I wear?

This year’s theme is “Dancing Through the Decades, Celebrating 30 Years of Serving Children!” Guests are encouraged to dress from a previous decade.  Some ideas include the roaring 20′s, fabulous 50′s, groovy 60′s, disco 70′s, or a more recent decade.

What are we going to eat?

Do I have to buy a ticket to participate?

This year our event is a hybrid event.

The Baked Goods Auction is online.  Anyone with access to the internet can participate in bidding on these items.  You do not need to buy a ticket to bid in these items.

The Dinner, Silent Auction and Live Auction is in-person on Saturday night at the Complex in Bonham. You do need a ticket to attend the in-person event.

Why are the ticket prices so expensive?

Like everything else, our costs to host this event have gone up.  Ticket prices include a nice buffet dinner, dessert and drinks. Drink options include tea, water, sodas, beer and wine.  The ticket price also includes an evening of fun and entertainment, including music and live auction.

Plus, a small portion of the ticket price includes a donation for the center. After all, one of the main purposes of the event is to raise funds so we can continue to provide a wide array of critical support services to kids from hard places.

What will the proceeds from this event do?

About ten percent of our annual budget comes from this event.  We get several major state and federal grants, but they do not cover all of the costs to provide all of the things we do for kids.

Proceeds from this event will help support all of our services, including CASA, Children’s Advocacy Center, Rainbow Room, Christmas Drive, School Supply Drive and Child Abuse Prevention.  In other words, your sponsorship, ticket purchases, auction item donations, bidding and winning and/or other donations will give kids and families the counseling, advocacy, forensic interviews, court accompaniment and other critical support they need to heal from trauma, grow and thrive!

Thank you for your support!
