Cherish the Children

Friday, April 5, 2019, Omni Dallas Hotel

Honoree – Rosewood

Featured Speaker – best-selling author Steve Pemberton

Luncheon Co-Chairs – Gina Porter, Nicki Stafford

In recognition of its commitment to the children of our community, the Dallas CASA Children’s Council honored Rosewood with the Caroline Rose Hunt Cherish the Children Award. Inspired by Mrs. Hunt and her constant dedication to the most vulnerable in our city, Rosewood Corporation and the Rosewood Foundation have been supporters of Dallas CASA for many years, making an impact on the lives of Dallas children through consistent and generous support.

The Cherish the Children luncheon raises funds for Dallas CASA by auctioning artfully-designed, one-of-a-kind children’s chairs and furnishings. Proceeds are used to support the volunteer advocates who help abused children find safe, permanent and loving homes.

We also welcomed guest speaker Steve Pemberton, the bestselling author of A Chance in the World, his heartbreaking memoir of a childhood in foster care recently released as a feature film. Pemberton is the Chief Human Resources Officer for Workhuman (formerly Globoforce), following executive stints at Walgreen’s and A relentless champion for those who have been left in the shadows, Pemberton shared his personal story of perseverance, his search for meaning and identity, and his motivation to create opportunities for others.
