Tickets and tables are on sale now for the 14th annual “Justice Is Served” to benefit the Fannin County Children’s Center. This year’s theme is The Great Gatsby. Organizers are planning a fun and elegant, 1920’s style evening with live jazz music by the James Dearing band. Guests are encouraged to dress up for this event and even wear 1920’s style clothing. Many of the center’s staff have been busy shopping for sparkly flapper dresses and long pearl necklaces.
Proceeds from the dinner and auction will benefit the local nonprofit agency, which includes CASA, Children’s Advocacy Center and child abuse prevention programs. Doors to the Multi-Purpose Complex in Bonham will open at 6:00 pm on Saturday, Nov 10.
A buffet dinner prepared by Feast on This will be served up by local judges, police chiefs, prosecutors, lawmakers and other justice officials. Guests will enjoy sampling sweet treats from a decadent dessert bar and bidding on numerous items in the silent and live auctions. A preview list of auction items will soon be posted on the center’s website.
Proceeds from the event will help sustain a wide variety of programs and services for children. CASA provides children in foster care a caring, concerned, trained volunteer to advocate for them. The Children’s Advocacy Center (CAC) provides a safe, child-friendly location to go to when abuse is suspected. The CAC provides forensic interviews, counseling, information, referrals and other support services to aid the healing process, including a facility dog named Render.

Tickets will cost $40 after Nov. 5 and at the door. Sponsorships with reserved seating are also still available. Deadline to be in the printed program is Oct. 31.
